The perils of intimacy


Oh Intimacy!

Where do we start?

I trusted you

And you let me down



The pain, the disappointment

The hurt, the sorrow

The truth and the lies

The real and the fake


You let me down again

I had hoped that you were going to be different

Not like the others

Better or different somehow


But there you are again Intimacy

You returned to reel your ugly head

I cannot trust you

You have proven yourself unworthy


You promise lies you cannot keep

And trust you haven’t earned

You were great at one time and we were happy

So happy I did not want you to leave

But you left

And you took intimacy with you


Love is pain

And pain is gain

Trust is risk

And risk equals reward


These are the perils of Intimacy.
