While You Were SleepingA Poem by Nightshade
It’s a hard decision in life -
To choose to be happy, not alone, but still with a broken heart
Or to be
utterly lonely, but with a hurting heart -
However letting no one destroy it.
As I quietly watch you sleeping peacefully next to me,
I think about a question you asked in the past.
You asked me
if I had fallen for you, and I lied -
My answer was no.
A tear falls down my cheek, falling into the empty space I put between us.
slightly in your sleep,almost like it pains you to see me cry -
Even asleep - although both of us knows this not to be true.
I promised you that I would never fall for you,
Although I had already broken that promise before making it.
And, if I
told you the truth - of how precious you are to me -
Then I would lose you… forever.
So, I’ll tell you what I have done - apologizing all the way.
right now - I tell you I have fallen for you -
Only you… but I only tell you while you were sleeping.
Only… you are actually awake,
Hearing every word.
We all have our secrets.
Now I’m the fool.
