I must call everything into question
now that you’ve smugly done your one-eighty,
mistrust your most innocent suggestion,
and find your lightest of motives weighty.
I see in a new and much harsher light
that what I took for truth was just an act,
and I must review with improved hindsight
what once I blindly accepted as fact.
I don’t blame myself for naiveté.
In fact, I’m proud of my guileless trust.
I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I don’t expect you to feel guilt. It’s just
my measure of you needn’t be reversed,
if you’d been honest with me from the first.
