Can I Trust You?

Can I Trust You? ~
 
Can I trust you?
Will you be there if I fall? 
when I fall…
or when I stumble?
or leap for joy
will it be your arms waiting for my landing?
When I cannot believe that anything is salvageable
will you show me how to sift
to find and focus on the bits of gold in the gravel?
When I reach out nightblind and terrified
is it your hand I will find?
Or will your pretty words and eyes twinkle at me
only long enough to lay me down?
Are we walking in each others footsteps 
our prints crossing
and weaving a braid in the sand
or do the marks show a brief encounter
a wave
a wink and a smile
a trace of a memory which started fading for you before it was over
but leaves me scorched and scored
Can I whisper to you and fear no condemnation? 
Can you stand my midnight soul
the thoughts I cannot bear to name
or give a place to in the chapters I have lived 
Can I trust…
will you be there…
will I find you when I reach out
and
will you let me be there to catch you also?

About chimerapoet

I write. I write a lot. A. LOT. There are times I am half blind with a sentence ricocheting off the walls of my stupid, cant be shut off to save my life, brain. I am miserable until I get it down on paper. Punch it up a bit. Usually cross out half of it. And then breathe. Relax. Only to do it all again..... But I just thought that was me. How I am. Not a writer....noooo...not me. Writers are.....writing people. People Who Write. REALLY write. Write things that matter. All grown up very important things. Not.....me. I am just a scribbler of sorts. And I was/am content with that....if it's true, well then....a scribbler am I. Until the thought wormed its way in to my brain (the furtive sneaky bitch) that maybe...just maybe...that is writing. My style. My strange way. But....still writing. So here I am at the dance. Not sure I know any of the moves and the music is entirely mine. But.....only one way to find out. Would you care to join me?
