We’ve all done it once

Put our trust in them

Said it would never happen

Lips are sealed

Yet when the visit is over

And we are driving home

A little voice is whispering

Maybe we should have  been still

Our nerves begin to rumble

Our stomach begins to ache

Those were so important words

We  try to shake our fears

Tell ourselves all will be alright

This could never happen

A leak within cement

We walk around our kitchen

Preparing for supper time

The phone rings and we answer

It is our neighbor saying hi

A visit is planned

We put the coffee on

We answer the door

We try humming a song

Sitting at the table

Meaningless words are being said

Then the bomb explodes wide open

The trust we had is pricked.
