Poetry – Distrusting Trust

Day three of the poetry challenge.  How The Daily Post seems to pick themes that affect me so, wonders me frequently. Other than I can find meaning in just about everything.  Today’s theme of Trust is rather apropos considering my feelings on it regarding someone in my life.

So here it goes


Do you see how you affect me?
Insecurity at your words
Standing here like a lost child
Tears have become my new friend
Reap the rewards of your cruelty
Unbroken is how you stand
Still I ache at what you said
Trust? What does that even mean now?

I can’t even attempt the device of inner rhyme. It’s not a method I like, nor do I want to really attempt to cultivate it much. I find it strange. But maybe somewhere down the line.
