Where I went wrong

I said no

and then I'd encourage you

Then even when you tried to stop me,

I persisted

You asked if I was sure

and I said it was fine

But the whole time I was thinking 

"Nah, not really"

I shoudn't

I considered, and reconsidered and

came to a decision of "No."

But everytime I pull a hypocritical 

"peak a boo"

this teasing is getting tiring

I feel like I'm selling myself out

and running you in circless

I want to be straight with you

Be legit

Be honest

We need to trust each other

I keep praying, maybe it'll be revealed 

to you 

to respect me as much if not more

than I do myself
