Broken with Regret
Once upon a time, I had a secret to keep.
It was deep, dark and exciting.
It consumed me for as long as it lasted and still lingers today.
There’s so much I want to say.
I wish I could tell you what a coward you are.
I wish I could tell you that you didn’t break my heart but you broke my spirit somehow.
It’s no use pointing fingers I brought this on myself.
But I wish you knew.
You weren’t worth it.
I deserved better.
I still deserve better.
Now I’m dealing with the repercussions.
But you move on.
As if nothing happened.
I’m not that bad a guy you said.
I won’t leave you hanging you said.
But you did.
As I recover I realize that the moment we met again I left all my morals at the door.
I jeopardized my life, my kids, my reputation.
And you didn’t follow through.
So now, I question my worth and myself.
You’re a secret I no longer want to keep.
