no longer unquestioning the trust has been shattered

doubtful I am now of all that you say

such a fragile thing is trust in spite of its strength

the smallest word can destroy years

giving the backward glances new meanings

I once trusted you, without question or reserve

I can do so no longer and I am saddened


“Abstain from all appearance of evil”


you have not and now my trust is gone

regardless of your innocence or guilt



Quote from 1 Thessalonians 5:22


To O.P.
