Do-n't


Why do we do or don't do things
Do we even know?
An if we do then
Who do we share it with
Trust enough to let go?
If we love with a pure heart
Does that mean
We keep some things to ourself?
Spare others the hurt
Or are they the untrusted
Or are we, me, myself
Who loves
Deeply
But unable to promise anything else
More than a moment
Or even a thought
Unreliable and inconstant
-not enough
So spare someone the pain
Remain in friendships trust
A safe place to be
More solid than the confusing world
Of love and lust
