When Trust Goes
Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar
When a trust shown to have for another goes,
It is not coming back.
Even with attempts made to re-create it.
Even with a forgiveness one says to admit.
What has gone has a way to stay there forever.
And when this happens,
It is best to leave and not beg to believe...
What was done is going to be forgotten.
Becoming defiant only makes matters worse.
When trust goes after being shown to be known,
Get up and leave with it.
There is nothing left that can restore its affect,
To expect it effective.
