Knew - Poem by Sylvia Loven Carter

Oak trees under water, the sky upside down
beautiful sun shining
you knew, she knew who else knew?
you're friends knew, some of my friends knew
some of you're family knew, some of my family knew

They tried to tell me some directly and indirectly
I didn't want to hear or accept it
although deep in my heart and mind I knew
and at the same time was in deep denial
because it hurt my heart
are was it my pride?

Maybe if I stayed he'd/she'd
cause they knew I and knew my heart was all for LOVING YOU
so why didn't it change?
