SL Poetry - The Pedastal

It's a funny thing how we
sometimes place people on a pedastal
it's a fine line between trust
and uncertainty

Some trust unwittingly
without fear
knowing they are justified in that trust
no chance of betrayal in any way

And then...
without notice
that trust crumbles
dissolves into ...
and we are left to feel
outwitted, used perhaps
fooled into believing

the pedastal vanishes
and we feel foolish for ever
having placed anyone on it

And IF we are smart
IF we learn from it
There will BE no more pedastals
and we will walk away
knowing...for the time being
that everyone
is flawed
