Last Chance

Let me put my cards

on the table

to tell you the truth

and not more fables.

I promise to be honest

about the things

I have done,

no more excuses it’s time

to admit I was wrong.

I should have never

taken you for granted

that it was impossible

for you not

to be disenchanted.

I thought that you would

be here no

matter what I did,

despite all my lies

and the trouble I hid.

Now you have said

this is my last chance

to come clean and stand

before you in a truthful stance,

to draw a line under

everything that has passed

and to make sure

this time is the last.
