trust

| March 8th, 2003

when trust has blown away
like so many fractured moments
leaving me fragmented and stillborn
in my ignorance
i tremble at your thoughts
and dream of placid certainty
of my place in your life
i long for days when i will be much more
than this bright and sparkling nothing
which fades when overcome by darkened
tortures hidden deep within my mind
how i wish for vibrant stillness in the
knowledge that i will never hurt you
again

at night i lay awake in fear that
i have broken this precious gift,
your trust, into pieces too small
to reassemble

please leave a reply
