Because I Must
It wasn't me who introduced distrust.
by Lawrence S. Pertillar
To accept that as an advantage.
With an acceptance to lust.
And as successful as you have been at this,
I empathize with you.
But there is no 'us'.
I admit to moments of wishing things differently.
But you have made it clear...
I should not dwell in providing you a bit of sympathy.
With a determination,
To stay in prayer and keep away.
And forgive and forget,
Whatever our closeness then had meant.
Without added stress or revisited torment.
In a dismissing of mental anguish...
Delivered and sent.
Because I must of you not trust!
Because I must of you not trust,
What it is you say.
Or do to defend.
