About the Poem

This poem is about knowing someone and not being able to tell them that you did something that could cause trauma to the relationship because you couldn't tell them face to face that you really cared.

How I Feel

I feel really awful
for what I have done to you.
I am really, truly, very sorry,
and I know that you are too.
It started out as fun and games,
but then the situation changed.
I couldn't think of what to do,
or how to avoid hurting you.
I was thinking if I told you,
how would you feel,
knowing that I'm not really for real?
In my mind all that I could see was my fear,
that someday, maybe, you wouldn't want me near.
All the time I was lying to you,
I was scared of your reaction,
I was scared of what you might do,
if you really knew the truth.
But most of all, I was scared to let you know,
how much I really do love you.
