You still don’t understand. You just don’t get it. I trusted you and you repeatedly violated the faith I had in you. Now you say you’re different; that you’ve grown and learned better. But you know what? I don’t trust you. Never will.
Breaking someone’s trust
is like crumpling
a perfect piece of paper.
You can smooth it over,
but it’s never going
to be the same again.
Hurts accumulate and create cracks where certainty once flourished. Even with great intention and an open heart, the conditioning that taught a person can’t be trusted is difficult to over come. I yearn for a time before you damaged my belief in you. SR
…pain’s like water.
It finds a way to push through any seal.
There’s no way to stop it.
Sometimes you have to let yourself sink
inside of it before you can learn
how to swim to the surface.
And now you want a life with me and wonder why I hesitate. You taught me how to mistrust. You showed me almost unimaginable pain. You treated sacred feelings and actions for the novelty of the moment. Now you say you’ve changed. But so have I. NC
Never allow someone
to be your priority
while allowing yourself
to be their option.
I still love you in spite of all the times you hurt me with your infidelities and lies. Now you say you want only me. A part of me wants to say “yes”. A stronger part screams “NO”. Sooner or later you’ll only shatter my heart again. I am certain of it. RO
I’m not upset that you lied to me,
I’m upset that from now on
I can’t believe you.
You keep me guessing all the time. One day you’re sweet and loving. The next you’re cold and distant. Is it me? Is it your past haunting you? Is there someone from before that is still in your heart and mind? Do you really love me? Do you want me? Can I trust you? J.B.
is not madness
it is not love.
Pedro Calderón de la Barca
My heart was broken when I found out what you had been doing. Now slowly it is going back together. I love you and want things to work out. But you must understand that sometimes I cut my self on the unhealed broken edges in my heart. Be patient. H.M.
We are all mistaken sometimes;
sometimes we do wrong things,
things that have bad consequences.
But it does not mean we are evil,
or that we cannot be trusted ever afterward.
On one hand there’s uncertainty about the future. On the other, I can’t see you and me anywhere but together. Our love has been wounded, but I hope we’ll heal and have only a strengthening scar to show for it. I’m scared, but love you with all my being. T.C.
Uncertainty is the biggest torture in love.
You feel jealous yet you can’t complain.
You can get hurt yet you can’t show it.
You can love with your all yet you can’t say it.
All you can do is watch, keep the pain,
enjoy the smiles & laughter.
Show how much that person means to you.
