Tempted by Trust

Tempted by trust we turn a blind eye to the truth,
Lured in by lust we let go of all we had as proof,
Indifferent to the obvious dismissive of the lies,
Tempted by trust we fail to see the devil’s disguise.

Tempted by trust we ignore all the signs,
Succumb to our curse and leave all the rest behind,
Misplaced in our belief and blinded by our vanity,
Tempted by trust we loose our reasoning and sanity.

Tempted by trust we fail to heed advise,
Left none the worse the rest we begin to despise,
Digging a hole deeper creating a false existence,
Tempted by trust we ignore all internal resistance.

Tempted by trust we fail to see how it will end,
Betrayed by out thirst for love and a true friend,
Holding back our judgment silencing our conscience,
Tempted by trust we mistake what’s real and what’s pretence.

Tempted by trust the world crumples all around us,
Filled with disgust at the troubles that surrounds us,
Ignoring all forewarning walking steadily into uncertainty,
Tempted by trust we find our spontaneity.

Tempted by trust we turn a blind eye to the truth,
Just as a nail is corroded by rust, it burns us though and through,
Blinded by our longing unable to read the Braille,
Tempted by trust we fail to see imminent betrayal.

    Tempted by trust we thrust our grim cynicism in the arms of fate, forsaking all and all for our sake :)

    From the title, tempted by trust..to walking steadily into uncertainty…and ignoring all internal resistance…
    What shall we say then? Awed!!

    we walk blindly in Daylight, numb all second thoughts and voices, avoid every churn in our stomach and forget literally who we are………
