Building belief
On shifting sands
Eyes that flicker
Won’t meet your gaze
You know this in your bones
But still you want to dream
Deception’s game entices
Drawing you down

A willing sacrifice
Lamb to the slaughter led
You’re helping in this dark
And lost parade
Your simple need to feel
A truer part of life
Is the sweet melody
Drawing you down

Hopeless romantic sighs
They’ll write your eulogy
But never know the steps
You took on rocky ground
Just take my hand he sighs
Deceptions greatest force
Is just this need to merge
Drawing you down

    I usually take a person’s word or what they say to heart. I have been disappointed innumerable times, unfortunately. Not so much gullible as trusting.

    • Yes, I’m probably much the same, and overall I’d prefer to be trusting and then proved wrong when needed than to be untrusting as a general starting point. 🙂 thanks for commenting! 🙂 🙂
