Trust is Elusive


 “I’ve got your back” she promised me

and she did

until she didn’t.

“I’ll always be here for you” he said

and he was

until he wasn’t.

“Friends forever!” we told each other

but forever was almost never.

“So, who can I trust?” I asked myself,

“I’m a fool to depend on others!”

The answer became very clear to me

and I smiled as I looked in the mirror.

Response to today’s one-word prompt: Elusive


  1. :belief that someone or something is reliable, good, honest, effective, etc (Webster dictionary). I believe that many people are trust-worthy as defined above. Many become misguided.
