My mind in overdrive,
Words cannot flee my lips,
Left speechless from shock,
What is there to say?

You're speaking crazy,
Foreseen it as a joke,
Reality you weren't,
Why tell me the tale?

Thoughts race in my mind,
Causing every ounce of my blood to run cold,
My soul is at a lose,
How shall I react?

The person I once knew,
Now seems like a stranger,
What other tales do you hide,
What's the next tale going to tell?

Perhaps its human nature,
Perfection has no existence,
Only mistakes and regrets exists,
Only human, right?

So I comprehend the tale,
Hoping to understand,
A challenge it will,
Will I understand?

Realize a tale can spread,
No regrets now, but later
Some tales should remain buried,
Ever heard of silence?

I'm not sorry,
Don't blame your s*^% on me,
The pain is all on you,
Only wish you didn't tell me the tale.

If only you didn't tell the tale,
Perhaps my opinions of you remain the same,
Perhaps I'd then feel sorry for you,
Too late now.
