14 (who?)
Trust is such a delicate thing,
Like a new bud,
Bursting out of the snow,
Fragile and easily broken.

The winter's wind taunting it so,
The snow about it threatening to encase it within its icy grip,
Yet somehow,
The bud holds on.

Till the sun's warm rays vanish,
The warmth that gave the bud such shelter and strength,
Ripped away from it,
Leaving it with no hope.

The frozen fingers within the snow reach,
Surrounding the new born bud within its tomb,
And with one flick,
It could break within a million frozen pieces that cannot be mended.  

I give you this image to depict how easily trust can be born,
And how it can be shattered.

Take care of the trust you have,
And that is given to you.

You may give it to the wrong person,
Who holds your trust within their own icy grip,
Taunting it with mockery,
And letting it slip through their fingers,

Shattering that fragile part of you.

When we trust,
We are making ourselves vulnerable to someone,
It takes a strong and good person to appreciate that and hold it dear,
It takes a small and harsh person to destroy it.

We are all going to be hurt,
It's just a matter of how and when.

Don't ever give someone all of your trust,
Until they prove themselves worthy.

Don't make the same mistake I did . . .
Just something I came up with. Things I've witnessed, people I know, and things I have experienced. Enjoy.

You've got a little editing at the bottom that could be fixed.

It's things like that that annoy me, no offense. Instead of commenting on the piece and its meaning, people are so obsessed with the grammar, punctuation, spelling, and editing. Why can't people set that aside, and actually appreciate the piece for what it's worth, instead of nit picking what the author did wrong? Thank you for letting me know regardless, I had known about it, but decided to get to it later because I had life to deal with because it suddenly became ridiculous. Enjoy your day and holidays.

Whoa, sorry. I just thought I was helping. I only felt I didn't have time to read it, otherwise I would have made some comment on the actual piece itself.
I'm one of three monitoring all submissions to #OnlyPoetry and with my job, the holiday season, and visiting with loved ones, I feel pressured to try and screen as many submissions in the time I have. All I feel that I have time for in trying to keep the submissions waiting to fourty or under while making sure that these are, in fact poems, in the right folder.
I was not nitpicking, I just feel bad for not actually reading these poems and so was happy to "help."
