    dotsA Sense Of Trustdots

    Too much or not enough

    We were never able to decide
    And whatever brought us here
    Will hopefully take us back
    Even though all I can hear
    Is promises of better things to do
    Than wasting my time excusing you

    Summoned out of thin air

    Descending through layers
    Of memories and souvenirs
    You should have known that to
    Commit myself entirely to you
    I'd need a thousand sacrifices
    To know that I couldn't ever sacrifice
    What you are to my senses

    Like a radar of fate

    What path did make me cross your way
    Forgiven for everything yet still
    Finding comfort in dismay
    Break, twist, rip and shatter
    Whatever it is does it really matter
    What it could be

    If we weren't so mined with precaution
    Blasting out of
    Our desperately screaming
    Overwhelming emotions.

      I really enjoyed this, however, there are two lines that hit funny to me:
    "Like a radar of fate"
    "If we weren't so mined with precaution"

    The imagery of both lines are very good, but the whole feel of the poem is very organic, so those two just feel out of place in the context of the whole poem. I did enjoy it alot though.

      This is a unique look at trust, and its many levels of give and take.
    The piece seems to speak of many other things, but the need for trust underlies many of the images. I especially like the sacrifices for sense.
    An interesting and creative write. Well done.
