Discovering the Relevance of Words

Best of The Daily Prompt – June 4th

I Believe

by ssrae

I believe you
Every time you say
Words so carefully chosen
To keep my heart in play.
A hint at a future
Whispered in my ear
As you slip your arm ‘round me
And pull me near.
My face flushes,
My stupid heart soars.
It’s like I forget
All the times before.
Just like always
I fall into your trap,
Suddenly I am
Blind to your crap.
I have little faith
That you’ll come through,
And yet somehow
I still do
Because I think
You believe you too.
