True?

if nothingís true
    it canít be true
        that nothingís true

if no-oneís true
    it canít be true
        Iíve been untrue

if youíve been true
    then yes itís true
        Iíve been untrue

but were you true
    in thought, not just
        as someone who

kept all the rules
    but broke my heart
        when you withdrew

inside yourself Ė
    or is it true
        thatís my fault too

or is it best
    never to face
        what might be true

if we both want
    (true, or untrue?)
        to start anew?
