Regret: A Poem

I think they now know
All the things I kept unknown
I wish they hadn’t heard
All the things once unheard

I heard the way she talked
Like she knew what I thought
I saw the way she walked
As if she is planning to make me talk

I wanted to apologise
But I thought I was far too wise
I knew I would pay the price
For doing what I had done now, thrice

After I left them fast
I can feel the way the girl will laugh
I knew they had found out last
About the things that would tear me apart

I wish they wouldn’t tell her now
About all the things she will one day know
I wish my feelings won’t show
When I cried inside for the things I know
