Someone said, “Love—more than feelings—is a commitment which is strengthened by trust.” This poem was written in light of two arguing lovers. An unsettling situation.


Mistrust. Distrust.

A misplaced trust.

A loss of trust.


Doubtful. Spiteful.

A love to rule.

A love so cruel.


Pretend. Intend.

Hope that can mend.

Hoping to mend.


Healer. Treasure.

Purer and dearer.

Lover, abide.
