Lost In Trust

Trust me he said, I told him that I really do, He never intended keeping the trust, And I also knew it for sure, Mutual distrust became the real object, We now trusted each other, While both waited for betrayal, I looked for the day I saw signs of him reneging, He watched out for same in me, The day he reneged, I was already prepared, And had gone back on my stand earlier, We both calculated losses and gains, Won or lost, Pocketing our gains and losses, We went in search of more people, Who could “trust” us with more, Soon enough we came yet again face to face, And got trusting each other again, When in fact distrust was the main theme, With new losses and gains, We still laughed, And did not let anybody out, Know the real refrain, We both had losses very many times, And each loss caused a pain, But we did not stop trusting each other, Till the time one of us was vanquished and gone.
