Part 6th of my series (Aly)

Trust is the Broken Mirror

Trust had been the one thing
That I hadn’t been able to do
After those last shards hurt me
My faith was broken too
I've lived in this place of mirrors
To keep to myself and I
Knowing to keep myself safe
On trust I couldn’t rely
I've tried extending myself
To the world to try and see
If trust was a beauty that is attained
Or just a worthless plea
One mirror broke I lost it all
Another broke I took the fall
All mirrors cracked just the same
I've fallen for this trusting game
I've gave my heart and got rejected
With this failure I've been infected
Trust was a deal I made with my friends
The only deal I could make
Because I knew that down the road
These mirrors could never break
I lie here today with reflections of now
Staring me right in the face
I wanted to trust the outside world
Yet lost to that embrace
I can’t erase yesterday’s faults
The pain felt deep inside
Naïve to think trust held kindness
And I went along for the ride
These mirrors here will always reflect
The shattered remains of my past
With time I’ll learn to trust again
Though the memory will always last

i truly hope she will learn to trust again, although i've heard it's the one thing difficult to regain. (sorry, not meant to hurt you or your friend...) beautiful - i love this idea of the broken mirrors and this piece reminds me somehow of shakespeare's hamlet - some of his monologues (without the increasing sense of madness)
