trust issues

why am I
afraid of you?
why can’t I
trust you?

is your smile
genuine or
deceiving?
no, I can’t–

I can’t look
you in the eye.
I feel your hate
pierce my skin.

my organs are
tight, crawling
bile in my
tender throat.

when I turn,
will you drive
that sacrificial
blade through?

like a snake,
will you bury
those cruel
words deep?

I am afraid
of you. and
I can’t
trust you.
