A poem originally posted November 2010 for your reading pleasure.

Shawn L. Bird

She trusts him
-the truth of him
–the truth of them

but she fears
the helplessness
-having watched him
unfold and unravel
under eyes that glowed
with glorious attention.

Temptation trails closely
behind such glowing eyes
and apparently intelligence

and good intention
are not always
adequte protection
from ampilified admiration.

That’s the truth of them

-the truth of him

–the truth of trust.



A submission for One Shot Wednesday.  Check out the poets.

    Well done, bringing to light a complicated subject such as trust with an encompassing completeness as you have is difficult at best. Good job. 🙂
