The naked truth

“Life is a lot more fragile than we think. So you should treat others in a way that leaves no regrets. Fairly, and if possible, sincerely.” (Dance Dance Dance – Haruki Murakam)

We had been lovers

In between an unborn friendship

Sweet undefined romance

Floating in cloudy water

Troubled transparency

No confessed lies

Only omissions and the unspoken

Weak words hiding truth

While being each other’s lover

We offered each other our bodies

Our hearts stayed selfish

Being kept for someone else

Then came the day

We decided to stop the oversight

Admitting the unavoidable

The love for other persons could never die

Our affection to each other could never end

We decided to go naked

Only truth this time

To give birth to a friendship

We had stopped to be lovers

To fully love the other persons

Keeping for ourselves

That sweet romance

Still undefined

In a naked truth
