Walt- my int is that you (regret?) having hidden behind your words, keeping the real you from view. And through that "deciet" you lost something valuable, (faith, love, friend...) Well done in any fashion!

I may be way off base here , but I would interpret this as an expression of remorse for not having learned to reign in one's own tongue before the damage has already been done .Really liked the read , Way out
