The Woes Of Trust

An angel formed from 
lake of purity,a gift to 
darkest parts of hearts.
A chaste damsel,
untouched rose from the 
garden of the elves.

Sent to earth,made an 
abode in a gentleman's 
heart,whom she 
cherished and loved.

As time travelled,another 
fella whom she trusted 
lured her to un-saintly act
Her pride laid on altar of 
dishonor and infidelity.
Her life she almost 
snuffed,she feared the 
love of her true love 
would be lost. Alas! bond 
of love is indivisible.

Shattered,with a broken 
spirit she tries to mend 
the pieces....on the 
shoulder of her lover she 
leans,hoping to soothe 
her bruised heart.

A true story,a close 
pretty lady friend of mine 
was raped by her family 
friend yesterday...who

    Dear I Bob E - I personally would encourage her to call the police because the man may commit the same act again, either with her or someone else. It's up to her, though. At the very least, this "friend" should no longer be considered a friend by the family.

    It is such a shame that we don't know who we can trust these days. Sometimes, even our best friends can become our enemies. Your friend is in a tough situation, but no one should ever have to feel abused. You should encourage her to find help, and I hope that she is doing well...This was a difficult subject to write about, good work!...Thank you very much for the great comments!
