Trust is the word
i have this strong feeling
an earth inside my belly.
the gravity
of my well trained imagination.

and i briefly unravel 
like running from firecrackers
in a contest for sadness.

then i remember myself...
my strength. my lips. my beast of a heart. my loyalty. my steel spine. my huge crazy love. 
i remember God. 

and how words are not actions
and thoughts are not truth
and how answers are not solutions
and how i respond to the simplest of things.

i trust kisses.
i trust my hand being held.
i trust a ride to the post office.
i trust a heart beating close to my ear.
i trust laughter in another room.
i trust being pulled closer.

but words are pretty.
