Unsure, my trust dawdles

the chances of any belief swirls, swishes,

like leaves caught in a whirlwind of confusion


I am hearing only partial declarations of honest worth, while,

the remaining helix of her true inner self is still cloaked.


Do I gamble on affirmations or distrust?

yes and no answer simultaneously.


And yet, her convincing expressions go on and on defying my doubts

the smiles she wears gate the answer I am seeking

that my loving of her depends on.


Behind them, of what matters dearly to me

seems to be cowering timidly

bedding, itself on an unreachable level.


Halfheartedly, I continue pondering

on middle ground.


Will she ever completely finish pouring

the contents from within, those I have for so long thirsted for


and allow the clarity of its possible pureness

to be subjected to the light of day

flow truthfully breaking my dam of mistrust. 



◄ Again the fall out

who stole the fucking STOP RIGHT FUCKING NOW! sign? ( eco rant ) ►

my absolute pleasure Adam ( and lovely dog! )

Rose, sorry girl, about your past mistakes, can happen to any of the
over-love sick.

Lisa, dig your comment 100% Lady.

Don, ( respectfully )
would loved to have put this piece into rhyme for you but, I'll need to attend your school a lot more before I am able to do so.

Thank you's everybody and adding Jason and Devon
to the appreciative list.

Leon - what I love about this is the way you have written it. It just flows so smoothly from one line to the next. The use of enjambment is excellent.....

If it is real, you will know. You will feel it, you will know. ❤

one really does have to be sure Leon before taking the plunge. A lesson that I have learned from past experiences. Fab read.

I love the smile as gate part and the rhyme following.

Thank you for commenting on my entry, Thank You. Although this thanks is sincere while the title was a thanks no thanks sort of bitterness.

while thanking you Keith and Jason I have given myself a swift kick up the rear end for having previously misspelt the title
