Torn between love and certainty
His heart full of throbs and pitter-patter
He cannot see his love anymore
Just because he has qualms about him.
He previously had opened up his heart
Stripping every part of himself
Such that every corner of him was known
But seeing through him was not enough
His love got another sex and this was never rest.
So what can he do? Where can he go?
Hasn’t he really done enough?
Hasn’t he given his best?
And yet still receive such unwelcome news.
Someone who loves you tells you the truth
And stands with you to acknowledge it
He is in love with another – another sex
And he is bold to tell you and maybe stand with you.
Learning to appreciate his honesty
He is slowly winning him back to their past
Because transparency is innocence
And Trust can be repaired.
