Trust is only copacetic
After it has seared the heart.

When betrayal is prognosticated,
Trust is impossible like a leper picking up a needle.
Trust is the pillar of Love.
Fail the exam of trust and feel the blade of Love
Deep-cutting your veins. Like
The mower,
It redu-
The rebuilding of such trust is reprobated and countered
As it appears like a guise.

The building of true Love needs trust
As its foundation. The bricks of trust makes Love strong.
That blade can help dig a deeper love.
It may take forever, but the Love will stand.
Lady, show me why to trust you,
So I can know how to love you.
