Honesty


Honesty

…and now I fear I said too much
The damage done, the email sent
…and I’m afraid of your response
Which could be so much different
From what I want, what will she think?
What have I done?
So my heart sinks
From what once was, to should have been
I’m stricken by
My honesty

A weekend curse I cannot rest
I wait all day by my PC
I need to know, my head’s a mess
The day slips by depressingly
So will she see and will she care?
What have I done?
I’m in despair
From what I said, tormenting me
I’m sickened by
My honesty

I sit and wait, confused, afraid
You answer comes I dare to view
Your own sweet words, my fears allayed
You still need me, I still need you
Our friendship sealed a friendship shared
My heart’s up there!
I never dared
To think that you, would still love me
If only for
My honesty

    Rightly said Honesty is the best policy and one should be honest in revealing his heartfelt feelings. Friend, rhyme scheme and sentiments are beautiful. Marks 10 Rekhamandagere (Report) Reply

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
