She Didn’t Know – Poem #26

14/08/2019 0 By GlennThomas

When I referred to her as the love of my life
I genuinely believe it was not another lie
Confessions but so far from cleansing a soul
Revelations, I bet she wished and hoped
She didn’t know
 
She thought she knew me completely
What turned me on but the truth is uneasy
That unopened closet must be so hard to stomach
Now I’m trying to find a way to bring her comfort
Because she didn’t know
 
A little too late, but I promised my honesty
Ask me anything, I’ll answer you properly
It was never my intention to barefacedly deceive
If you doubt anything, I hope that’s the part you believe
I’m sorry, you didn’t know
 
I never should have lied to you at all
I know it was never right to let you fall
I hid my skeletons and abused your trust 
Trying to barricade that closet door shut
So, you wouldn’t know
 
I came clean and revealed a part of me
Thinking honesty would kick start our heartbeat
I thought we could start fresh with the truth
How was I to know you’d never accept what you knew?
I didn’t know
