Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …

trust is a slippery eel

29 September 2013



trust is a slippery eel




a slippery eel,

who’s never caught easily

so fragile to hold

squirming scrutiny

uncomfortable with your gaze,

demanding freedom

don’t hold too tightly

I am captive by my choice

as if, unaware

questioning waters

both a right and privilege

earned, given freely

such a complicated simplicity

trust is balanced without duplicity.
