comtemplating trust

What exactly is it,
That feeling….
No one really knows.
The feeling that tears you apart
And leaves you wondering
The tearing, pulling, ripping,
Piece of shit feeling
It makes you say stupid things
Opening up to people,
Because you think it might help
Because it might, right?
Or am I just insane,
Or is that the point?
Is this love,
What all great poets write about
The feeling that consumes you,
Only now it’s masked with fear
Do I love you, who knows?
Who even knows what love is
In this crazy fucked up world who knows anything
So why not,
Just spill your story to anyone who’ll listen
Maybe they can help
But fuck trusting them, right?
There’s no such thing as a good person anymore
Once you think you can trust
You find you were right, you can’t
So many things are lost in this world
No traditions, or trustable and honest people
No one who even knows what morals are,
Or even manners for that much
But just when you think that
You find hope in a person who doesn’t even know
You find hope in who they are,
They have manners, and might be honest
Does that mean they’re everything else too?
Maybe they are, maybe they’re the last one
But how do you know if you can trust them
Once you’ve been hurt
From placing trust where it shouldn’t have been
Is it worth trying this time, how do you know?
Should I just jump and hope they catch me,
But even if they do, could that be a lie too?

Artist's Description

Just started writing cuz i was confused, and still am. But really, can we trust anyone? Even if we think we could, can we learn to trust again, even after it’s been abused so many times? If we did, would it just be foolish, like all the birthday wishes over the years, or would it be fate, to finally trust someone, who might not let you down?
