How can I ever trust anyone’s emotions?
When they cry to me?
When they tell me that they love me?
When they say that they’re thinking of my best interest?
Nobody knows me
I’ve made sure of that
Because the one person that knew the most
Used it against me
Set me up for failure
Reveled in it
And took my success as challenges to break me
She must’ve said:
“How can I break her if she keeps coming back up?”
“Why can’t I just drown her in her sorrows?”
“Why isn’t she tired enough yet?”
“To let the torrent take her?”
“To give up her fight to get to the other shore?”
“When all I’ve done is place my hand atop her head every time she surfaced?”
How can I believe anyone’s gaze?
How can I ever NOT feel alone?
She has taken it away
My faith in love
The one thing that remains broken, trust
