Internal rhyme in a an acrostic poem about trust…. ahh… that is difficult. Yet that is just what the assignment from Writing 201 dished out. Finding no joy in rhymes about trust, it was so much easier to rhyme about the lack of trust and use it as an end rhyme. But it is dark, so you have been warned….
Two, but one, invisible threads.
Remaining connected, unspoken pacts.
Under the layers of life, we did not yield.
Secrets stayed buried, no need to tell, just
true respect, without fear or expectation.
The Absence of TRUST
Tough and brutal, go it alone,
Rip it away, suspicions grown,
Ugly fears, not part of me.
Separate, disconnected, a show of strength, maybe?
Tormented, not strong, no happiness, you see?
