I Should Have Known

I speak with honesty  give my love my loyalty my devotion my benevolence believing I would earn the same in return. My eyes alone can't see into people's souls I can listen yet  I may not hear what they say miss the words between the lines. People built walls wear shields not to get hurt not to share it's less painful uncomplicated. I stand unprotected  no walls around me I wear no veil  my shield is my skin nowhere to hide no secrets to keep. Now I lay wounded bruised insulted broken hearted. I should have known  I should have  but I didn't.
