Trust Is A Fickle Thing

Ever hear the phrase

“Keep your friends close but your enemies closer”?

Friends know your weaknesses,

enemies can exploit them.

Being a roommate is different than a friend

You trust your friend

You might trust your roommate at first glance

I did

I regret that decision

Living in close quarters can cause a ruckus

but not as much as disloyalty and distrust.

Knowing a weakness is knowledge,

exploiting a weakness is leverage.

Saying you trust is easy,

but distrusting is even easier.

Worlds collide is the oddest of ways,

shattering before the eyes.

Ever wonder why you trust so easy?

I don’t.

I don’t trust easy.
