Why have I remained silent

hiding what happened between us

when I have no wrong doing

upon my conscious

Is it out of embarrassment

for knowing the truth in my core

yet ignoring the signs,

for being fooled

by your facade,


by your cruelty,

your manipulation

My discomfort is rooted

in admitting I was tricked,

dedicated to a person

who was not who I believed them to be

Our time has passed

and I continue to struggle

to vocalize the truth

yet I was me

and you were the one

who was not you
