Section 6: Trust

Can you trust me without knowing me

Though life and other men have taught you not to trust?

We don’t have time for proof and reassurances.

Now, more than ever, we must decide to love or move on.

We each took the leap much younger with others.

A decade or more later we gave up the fight.

What would make either of us at this time, in this place, at our age

Risk it all on another leap of faith?

We should fear the leap.

We know better than to dream, believe again.

Yet we stare down the road to darkness,

At an abyss of loneliness until the end,

In a perpetual transitional period

Between the Hell of past love and death.

It is this that makes us want to take the risk at love again;

A last attempt to get it right.

There is something about the sparkle in your eyes;

Yes, it is the specks of pain that lie beneath.

Your smile is practiced, but your lips are kissable.

Your voice is soulful; tinged with past regret,

Yearning for a simpler, truer love.

It is your laughter which does not flow easily

That breaks my heart when it does and

Hastens me to make you laugh again.

Can you trust me without knowing me

Though life and other men have taught you not to trust?

More importantly, have I learned enough of life’s lessons

To make me worthy of trust this time?
