A Tearing

Beyond reality,
My heart hides
In a fantasy world…

Unwilling to accept the truth,
Of how much I love you.

Needing to be safe,
Needing the familiar routine,
I lock myself in a cycle of ambiguity,
Afraid to expose my innermost feelings.

Then you confronted me,
With the brutality of the obvious,
Opening a wound I wanted
So desperately to heal.

Now…
There is nowhere to hide.

Now…
There is nothing but
The cold, hard steel
And consequences of raw emotion…

And a tearing of my disbelief.
