How Many Times?

Only so many times
can you watch trust sink to the ocean bottom
before you cease to leave the shore.

Only so many times
can you endure hearing, “Trust me,”
before you slam shut that door.

Only so many times,
only so many times, only so many times…
yet, still you long for once more.
