I, Unleal?

Is it up to me?
Why do feelings change?
I just want to be free,
Is it out of my range?

Am I being a criminal,
For feeling this way?
We were so official
But now for us I don't have anything to say

I, Unleal?
I am just being truthful.
There is a truth which I want to reveal,
I'm sorry I was not faithful..

I followed my heart,
Then why is it aching with guilt? ..
What I wanted was to be apart,
Then what is this strange feeling which is built?

I am across the river of drama,
Still I am a little wet with it's water?
Both of us has this trauma,
Need a recovery light to scatter....

I, Unleal?
I am just being truthful.
There is a truth which I want to reveal,
I'm sorry I was not faithful..

    What does unleal mean? Anyways, good poem admitting ones guilt and apologizing is good yet the effects of unfaithfulness still sting and carry a bitter tone for both.
