Fox

At the time
It was easier to walk away
Than to tell the truth. 
A cowardly move, I know,
But I wasn’t brave enough.
You begged for an explanation
I simply couldn’t give.
I couldn’t bear to hurt you 
More than I already had.
You knew the truth,
And I knew that,
But you wanted to hear me say it.
You begged to hear the words.
It’s long forgotten, of course,
And you’re happy now.
You’re in love.
But I still regret.
I wish I’d been brave.
Sometimes it’s easier to just
Walk away,
Like a fox
Slinking away into the night.
