It’s amazing the junk
we have to deal with
when the people we trust
are really just
out to fulfill their own motives
ones we thought were our friends
or lovers so close
do us wrong.
Yet we don’t always shut it out, and we trust again,
opening ourselves up to be scarred again.
or ripped open afresh.
and yet we still love
amidst the pain.
and we raise our hopes again.
just not as high as we had before.

This was something I wrote a while back out of frustration with some junk I was going through at the time, being let down by someone I was pretty close to. I was just starting to – more-or-less – pull myself back together and just try to hold my head up, so-to-speak. I think I’m still figuring out who I can – and can’t – trust. It gets pretty frustrating… Whatever…
