Learning To Trust
Go softly here, let me lead the way,
so shadows can not hide behind this door,
for skepticism is my greatest foe,
yet hope forever, forces me to stay.
Be gentle now so I can learn to trust;
betrayal comes in colors of the night.
My soul desires a warm and loving touch;
please do not say you love me if it's lust.
With just a touch, my secret is revealed;
a traitor's body, defies my decree.
Before this night my spirit was concealed.
Malice enslaved, now passion sets me free.
Suspicion is the only truth I know;
Please close the door behind you when you go.
