If you loved me could I trust you
Beyond illusion's farthest bound?
While the moon shines, the wind blew
And the world went spinning around.
In the tangles of loose snares
Of the devil's robust net,
You said you loved me only
But you do not love me yet.

I love you but I can't trust you
Any further than that door;
For many worlds and seasons change
But in time you'll love me more.
So dear, until I believe you
As women try to know men;
You know that I will trust you
But I will not love you then.

    while i was in love i could be trusted. and this has been tested more than thrice. but it was too good of a thing to last. death interceeded. i don't know how long it would have lasted. but while i was in love, i was true. so all you may have is a promise to return always. which to me is'nt good enough either.

    Awwww! Poor guy! Couldn't pay a visit earlier, I was busy celebrating the arrival of my new born niece. A real angel she is.

    Love this intuitive piece, Elizabeth. The last part is particularly powerful, when you describe the fate of all aging romeos

    Where trust is reaped practically upon whom trust was rested for true love, that never ends. I think love is love, but for one, it's like a diamond, for another one, it's like a purchasable item and for other, nothing but only love. Who wants to reap the peak where there's no gap between trust and love, your words depicted clearly what I have understood with my sense in your fantastic write. Love rests on trust, like pot and the things in pot. Lovely write, my friend. No words to thank you, because thank is thank not more than that. I thank..... bl

    love, that mystery so often veiled in shadow and here so aptly unveiled in light. Beautiful and compelling

    as usual you are my idol to write so smooth like a creamy red velvet cake!! Then you cut deep to reveal the red flesh!! love it!!

    Ouch, I feel the sting of scorn and sorrow here and now and from the past. Thanks again for reminding me that only TRUE love surely lasts...Beautiful poem, Elizabeth. Yours I mean, once again you've struck a lightning bolt deep into the portal of the human soul and are my never-ending princess of perfect poetic delight:) Peace, Luv & Happy Hugs, Terry

    Hey, great sensitive subject you wrote about! You dove right in and exposed all aspects of trust, wow! And yes, this needs to be discussed between all people in love! Outstanding work!!

    You say I'm your 'Rooster.' What does one trust a rooster to do but chase all the hens in the hen house? Cock-a-Doodle-Dooo! Love your poem; especially, the last line.

  1. Date: 9/28/2011 11:02:00 AM is the most crucial thing with me when it comes to love. Without it, what is there? Good work....TAH

    I hear ya sista. A brotha from anotha with commitment phobia. A heart like yours can be broken when carelessly devoted. So now when we speak of this poem, your words will be quoted.

    I loved the twist in this poem. I don't love that you had to write it but I think that you did a great job with it. Tony
