“If you fall / I will catch you / I’ll be waiting / Time after time”

Trust is an important quality in many relationships: romances, for one, and close working relationships for another. Whenever circumstances leave a person physically or emotionally vulnerable, it’s vital that the people with them can be trusted.
This week, write a poem, scene or story where two people are in a situation that calls for real trust. How does it play out — is the trust rewarded, or has it been misplaced, and how does that result affect the characters involved?
