How do I tell you?
How do I say the truth?
Can you choose the words for me?
How will you react?
What will they think?
How hard will you cry?
Why does it have to be this way?
How do I tell you?

How could I live a lie for so long?
Why did you force me to say the words?
Why couldn’t you see the truth?
Why did you make me lie?
How could I have believed my lie?
How did I survive this relationship?
Why did I have to hurt you so bad?
Why did you trust me?

How did I keep this a secret?
How did I masquerade it?
What kind of person am I?
Why did you have to fall prey?
Why did I choose you?
How can I tell you the truth?
How do I tell you, “I don’t love you”?
How do I tell you after all these years?
