Unexpectedly,
 1
part of me strayed
 2
from our transient euphoria
 3
and returned me
 4
to insecurities reminiscent
 5
of adolescence, although
 6
it was a fact
 7
I had done nothing wrong.
 8
 
 
To reveal this uninvestigated
 9
departure to someone I loved
 10
would be premature, expose
 11
me to indefensible accusations
 12
and make things probably
 13
unsalvageable.
 14
 
 
And so I made a pact with
 15
those elements of me I had yet
 16
to discover to agree that
 17
private uncertainty is not a crime
 18
if it remains unmentioned.
