POETRY: Trust (Hidden Lock and Key)

Trust (Hidden Lock and Key)

Trust can be a tenuous thing, I must say,

I must say.

A key that cannot be just given away,

On any such day, no way, no way!

 

It needs to be built upon a stable foundation,

Worked to be kept in the proper condition,

With two people resisting unfaithful temptation,

To withstand storms should be the main mission.

 

Trust can be an unstable thing, still to this day,

Still to this day.

A lock that is sacred and hidden away,

Protect it each day, keep disasters at bay.

POETRY: Broken

Broken

A broken vase, a fallen chair,

A broken heart, betrayal, despair.

 

A trust built like the tallest wall,

And now the bricks lay on the floor.

 

Salty tears, a broken plate,

Shattered trust, betrayal, hate.
