Deceived


Deceit...pierces...twists...then retracts
Silence...thoughts
Strings broken...snapped in two
Not frayed, but sliced

Trust creeps forth...ever so slowly
Grazing the arm...ever so softly
Slapped away...in haste

Anger at trust, I ask
Why not deceit?

Deceit fools...deceit plays games...deceit pretends
Trust...let's you down...makes you talk...gets you in trouble
Trust helps you shake the hand of deceit

Trust cannot be trusted...
