trust knows no honor


trust is a sacred thing

secrets shared from one to another

in moments, most intimate

it does your heart good to revel in the freedom

of trust

you can relax


emotionally curl up next to someone and feel safe

trust is a funny thing, though

an intangible that can contort

…can twist itself into the most hideous creation of our soul

it can become a commodity

bought, sold and traded

in the wrong hands, a weapon

a thing of destruction that strikes at the core of our being

we are thrown off

head spinning

heart breaking

as we realize, in the twinkling of an eye

that we have trusted in vain

even moreso, to our detriment
