Poetry: That’s How You Put Faith in Me by Christian Garduno

That’s How You Put Faith in Me

Can’t you see
when you’re blind
that’s when I see
that’s how you put faith in me

When you lied
well I cried
I can forgive
but I don’t forget

And when you come closer
closer closer so close
there’s no separation between you and me
that’s when you put faith in me

When you lied
well I died
I can forgive
but I never forget

We were on the pavement
cars circling in the roundabout
Our eyelashes were entangled
there’s nothing ever to talk about

Don’t you see
when you are blind
that’s when I see
that’s how you put faith in me
