Poem: Trusting in You

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.


Trusting in you
without question,
praying love is the reason
behind your kind gestures.

Wishful thinking,
with fingers crossed,
anticipating your heart to be true.

Jumping in feet first
with my unprotected heart,
hoping no deceit,
with white lies
hidden in your words,
will shatter me to pieces.

I agree. Trust is a very hard issue in relationships. Especially for those who have been hurt in the past.

Thank you for reading my work.

Trust, in my opinion, is the hardest thing to maintain in a relationship. We should all aspire to become trustworthy.

Thank you for reading my work.

Yes, treading with care and going slow is always great advice.

Too often though...the heart jumps ahead.

It would seem the words "tread with care" and "go slow" are in order here. Good poem Brenda.
