Trust Issues

Christine Ibeagi

 

You slit my guard’s throat.. Now he’s down on the ground

I let my guard down

I let my guard down for you!

You tell me to trust you because i’m beauty and youre the beholder

Now i’m forced to follow you during the day and sniff your tracks at night

You have me on a leash… I’m tired of being on a lease! Take it off, I can’t breathe!!

But what happens when you do take it off?

I can’t do anything, because you are my everything…

Don’t leave me…

You tell me to trust you when your phone vibrates out of control

You tell me to trust you when she gives you that “look” at school

You tell me to trust you when you say you’re busy..

I do

And i find myself sitting there waiting for my master to come pull my leash again

..

I stopped wagging my tail for you

So you lock me up in your cage of lies, BEGGING ME NOT TO RUN AWAY

one day

I’ll find where you put my leash

And I’ll never take it off again
