It was hard


It was hard

It was hard
not being able to say
what I wanted to say
when I wanted to say it .

It was hard
not being able to tell you
that my life is an open book
to all those who know me

It was hard
not being able to declare
that everyone knows whom I have loved
And whom I have hated , and still do

It was easy
to imagine , however ,
how comfortable some people must have felt
that I was silent , muted , unheard.
