    She Trusted Me

    Fear is self indulgent and destructive... She trusted me... She was open... I held back... She shared... I closed off... Now she is gone... She said, she doesn't trust me...  You never know what you have until it is gone... "Where there is fear there is no...

    And Sometimes Even After I Do Have A Reason Not To.

    I guess i am just one of those people... the ones that have a hard time letting go? Even after all I've been through with my ex. The pain, the control, the offenses, the abuse... all of it. Even his unforgivable sin of betrayal against me..... I still care. I haven't trusted...
