Should Have Not Trusted You

On the edge of the cliff,
My hand struggled
To hold on.
You came
And extended your hand,
Willing me to take it
And accept your help.
I held on to that hand
And held on tight,
Knowing you can let me fall
And believing you never would.
Still, I hit the ground.

*sighs for hours* I know I know I know I know this feeling more than ever right now. I'm going through this. Where I trusted someone even though I knew this person would eventually hurt me. So, when I saw the title of this poem. I was like, yup, I know what this is gonna be about. I love the feeling of being held from a cliff. I've written a couple of poems lately with this metaphor. I think it captures mistrust really well. Amazing poem here.
