Trust

I mistook the signs, I read them wrong
or perhaps I merely misheard
I believed that when you said you loved me;
that you loved me, and meant it as
an affirmation and a declaration of devotion
I believed that when you said you needed me;
in ways you couldn’t comprehend
that you needed me, as I need you
in dedication and word and deed
I believed you when you said that you were mine;
in ways you’d never been to another
through strife and through bliss
a profession of passion and of desire
I believed you when you said we’d talk;
never allowing a silence to descend
not in darkest hour or brightest sun
an oath to fervour and to feeling
I believed you when you said I was yours;
to love and to cherish
always as one, even when it was hard
a promise of warmth and compassion
I adored you when I gazed in your eyes;
awash in warm glow and comfort
I adore you still, without these walls
and within the dank fortress of my heart
