    If I told you I was drowning
    Don’t ask for wet shoes as proof

    If I say that I love you
    Trust what I am saying to you

    If you have reservations
    Let me know
    We should discuss them up front

    We can spend time talking about it
    The way to work thru things
    The subject is exalted
    I am not denying the cause
    There is no danger to try something
    If you’re feeling it of course​


    Take your time
    I won't rush this
    I can be patient with you
    I just need you to trust me
    I want to trust you.​

    i second the thought

    you laid it out there
    you are trustworthy
    you want to have that trust in your partner
    and that partner in you
    them to believe as you believe



    trust a difficult thing to commandeer

    but if you trust yourself

    trust will find you

    this was heavy man

    First off i have to laugh at DSS (its a ritual)..:spin:..jkin..haha

    Secondly.. trust is very important in any kind of relationship wheter it be intimate or non..with trust comes other important aspects that continue to make peoples unions stronger..with no trust.. do you really have a relationship? :garbage:You also have to trust others whom you are not in relation with..such as the cashier at the grocery store...you have to trust that they will not double ring up items and that they will give you your correct change back (mistakes are an exception)...


    True
    Relationships
    Unconditionally
    Sustain
    Trust


    Third..but most importantly...GREAT WRITE...go head with yo bad self..:terrific:

    Trust is so important. If you say something really is so, and that person doesn't believe you, where is the trust? You can't force them to, you can only hope your word means that much. You posed this piece just so poet, much truth in your words.
