You tell me to trust —
And I try
But the memories of failure still live
Rejection burned in my mind
Why is Unrequited Love so easy to find?
Seems like the laundry keeps spinning
But it ain’t gettin’ clean
He goes after her, and she goes after someone else
Et cetera, et cetera…
You know what I mean
And so we go — just chasing the dream
Some kind of twisted fantasy
One disappointment after another
Another serving of Passionless Whatever
Oh, yes, another helping for me, please!
Plopped down on my plate like prison-cafeteria slop
You start to feel like you’ve tried everything
Putting yourself out there
Holding yourself in
Taking a date because, well, he’s nice
Refusing the date because he’s just…nice
But that Essence is missing
That thing that breaks a person wide open
So I ask You —
What is there to trust?
Broken open doesn’t often last even when it happens
Diamonds just turn back to dust
So my shaken prayer is this and always this –
Just let me Accept
Because really –
What else is there?
