How do I?

How do I confess to love so deep?

When it may hurt those I want to keep,

A secret so direr,

To hide my desire,

How do I come clean?


How do i stay true?

When i only told few ,

The thought of perfection,

Only to be going the wrong direction ,

An image I must unseal,

A reputation To reveal,

That started with one thing,

And ended with a fling,

How do I stay away?


How do I learn?

When it needs to be earned,

Trust isn't free,

Honesty is key,

Love, lust, and lies,

Everything inside dies,

How do I stay alive?
