I Didn’t Know

trust-1418901__3401

I trusted you when you said I was yours

But I didn’t know you were never mine

I trusted you when you gave me your love

But I didn’t know you passed it around

I trusted you when you said you’d be there

But I didn’t know you were everywhere

I trusted you when I sprawled out naked

But I didn’t know I wasn’t rare meat

I trusted you when I served up myself

But I didn’t know extremes of your greed

I trusted you with my fragile thoughts

But I didn’t know you’d crush them and grind

I trusted you when I gave you my soul

But I didn’t know it was freefalling

I trusted you when I gave you my life

But I didn’t know I wasn’t enough

I trusted you

but I didn’t know.

  1. You’re making me think about all the trust we give. There’s the trust we have that things will work — like I trust my chair will hold up when I saddle up. Then there’s the trust we give another person. In the right hands, it’s an asset that grows. In the wrong hands, it returns, shriveled. So how to know whom to trust before giving them your trust…that is something I’ll be thinking about. I love your though provoking poems!
