Trust is gone.
Shattered by harsh words, angry voices, broken promises.

Love remains,
But without trust,
I am no longer at ease in your presence.

I no longer believe you will do what I need for love of me.

Betrayal on both sides has cost much.

Is the damage too great to be repaired, or is the foundation itself gone?


Pain is the beating force, constant and unyielding.

I yearn for peace and quiet.

A beacon to guide me.

Where it will guide, I do not know,
But the journey could not be any more painful.
