I Confess


I confess...
I've never been so mad in my life
As when you left me
To watch only from a distance
As I was torn apart...
Heart and soul...
Helpless of myself
To set myself back right again.
No doctor could help.

I confess...
My mind took tortured looks
At the strange nothingness
The sense of pending judgment
The perversions of affections
The alignment with others
The possibilities of ultimate betrayal
The danger to my true sanity...
I hurt.

I confess...
I apologized for being such a mess
And needed you to forgive it
But I needed you to be with me
With apologies, and longings and dreams
Like I came to you.

I confess...
It all made me a little crazy.
