Confessions in Penance

I could say the pain in your eyes
Is tearing me apart
But then I would be living a lie

For I feel companionship but no desire
A soothing tenderness without fire
And remember soul mates are never for hire

I try and fail to rhyme
For something’s cannot be reasoned
And there are others that cannot be seasoned

There are promises I made in haste
Which ended in distaste
And I could lead you again only to fail

So I must say things you don’t want to hear
Do things which you have to bear
And face the bitter truth that stares

Love but not in love

-a jerk
