Moving On Poem

This poem came to me from my heart, after my relationship kept falling apart.

Trust

© Kieno
Your words begin to mean nothing to me,
You continue to lie under your breathe.
Had me convinced that you were different,
Yet here I am, with a broken trust.

My heart torn out from the center of my chest,
Ripped into a million pieces.
You promised me over and over,
That you would change for the better.

But I soon came to realize,
That you're no different than the first time we met.
Each event replayed itself,
And each time you betrayed me.

Again I am standing here in this empty hole,
Listening to the echoes of your promises fade away.
I really thought you would change for me,
I really believed that you cared for me.

Oh, how wrong I was,
To put my trust in the likes of you.
The pain I am feeling now,
Is the pain Iíll forever retain.

Over and over again,
I am left with nothing.
No matter what I do,
I always get the blunt end of the stick.

Normally I would say Iím to blame,
But sadly I do not deserve this claim.
My eyes have reopened,
To never again let you gain my trust.

In the world we live in now,
Has very little, if any,
Able bodies that I can trust,
Is it so that only I can earn this trust?

I donít believe Iíll ever truly understand the meaning of trust.
I wonít live by this word,
For its meaning is far too easily broken,
And very difficult to fix.

No longer will I allow trust to govern my life,
No longer will I allow your love in my life.
I stand here alone,
With a broken trust.

My last words to whom it may concern,
My trust in you was a privilege.
You continued to break the very string
That held my trust for you.

In the end,
You betrayed me with more than I can say,
Left me
With a broken trust and a broken heart.
