Can't Confess

A reckless mess,
I've failed the test,
distress,
abreast,
my ill request.
I've built this nest,
and now this stress,
I've done my best,
but can't confess...

To you, untrue,
and what I'll do,
pursued,
ensued,
we've come unglued.
And so, I know,
I have to go.
I just can't show,
you first hand though.

Ashamed, restrained,
I can't maintain,
this lie,
I've tried,
to wonder why.
But now, I see,
I want to be,
alone with him,
and him with me.
A.E.
