There is a big elephant in the room.

I eat this elephant one bite at a time.

Uncomfortable silence creates intense

moments between us. I am hiding something,

is it so oblivious? You never wanted to be caught

up in limbo. What do you want from me? Please

speak your mind. The truth hurts and yet sets

me free. This is my alibi, but at least it wasn't a lie.

I can see the pain and disappointment in your eyes.

I apologize for letting you down. The consequences

were severe, but I learned to preserve. Lesson learned,

life goes on for us.
