I LIED

You look away
It’s apparent …. it’s true
There’s distance between us
Can’t get close to you.

The look in your eyes
The change in your voice
What more can I  do?
I don’t have a choice.

I’ve begged and I’ve pleaded
I be down on my knees
You won’t reconsider
You won’t forgive me.

For you …. all that matters
Is that I have lied
You’re passing judgement
While I sit and cry.

Hardened and cold
You turn your back 
I should’a known
How you would react.

Can’t you show mercy?
Let go of your pride
There’s strength in forgiveness
I’m sorry …… I lied.
