Unbearable Anguish.

I'm torn with regret
I can't just repent

I dug myself in a hole of lies

When it was discovered, we recoiled

Out of doubt, out of fear

We focused on the opinions of others

Instead of what we thought

 

When I let our secret fly free,

I was shown acceptance and love

Hope blossomed like a cactus flower

It would be okay. 

 

He was capricious, of two minds

One day yes, the next was no,

He produced a name, but renounced his love
