Confession - Poem by Kathleen Pastrana

The possibility of a confession
hung in the air,
I could feel it in my fingertips.
We could've been brave, right then,
right there,
but fear of your reaction
held back my lips.
The secret I could never tell
haunted me in my slumber,
followed me as I fell
captive to the spell of that October
evening.
I could have told you in the car,
oblivious to the moment passing
but I haven't got a quark
of confidence to start talking.
So in this poem I shall confess,
the string of words I've kept the longest
and the secret I've been dying to tell,
is I'm in love with you, Hernel.

    So in this poem I shall confess,
    the string of words I've kept the longest
    and the secret I've been dying to tell,
    is I'm in love with you Hernel. You depict love as a sweet secret which you reveal here publically. sooo nice. thank you.
