Just a sliver?

via Daily Prompt: Portion

There are portions of my heart that I may not want to give out just yet. The vulnerable piece, the trusting piece, the loving piece. There was a time that I would give out those pieces easily but time and wounds have made me a little more cautious. Trust must come first and it must be earned. Once trust happens everything else falls into place. Right now you can have a small piece of each, a sliver, and in time I trust you will earn all of me and treat each piece of me as if it was the best thing you ever had. But first I have to trust myself.

About geminilvr

I have been through many relationships in my life, most long term, and they have all shaped who I am in some way. I try to find humor through the pain and heartbreak and find the strength to do it all over again. Navigating the dating waters in my forties isn't easy but hey what in life is? My blog is sprinkled with past relationships, current status and thoughts on it all! I hope my experiences make you smile, laugh or cry along with me and relate to the complexity that is life, my life, perfectly imperfect.

  1. Lovely. Where there is trust every other thing falls in lace. Without trust there can be no true love.
