Reading Between the Lines

I spent so much time
reading between the lines
of everything you said
or making sense of your actions.

I could never take you
at face-value because
I couldn’t bring myself
to trust you to be honest.

But now I find that
you were exactly what
you claimed to be,
and it’s too late to take

my mistakes back.
