The fog behind your eyes does not suffice
To hide the secret which I hold so dear.
I cannot let you speak a word aloud
Or even whisper in your mind’s own ear.
The only secrets that were ever kept
were those secrets that were never made.
Conceal this part of you away until
Never-day comes to wish it all away.
I pray for you that this shall all pass by,
All gone forever in some flame divine.
Wherefore can you not pray for it to die,
To go away so you can still be mine?
I cannot keep you like you think you are,
I cannot let you go and keep my heart,
This way you feel must be a lie, a trick,
For if you leave I know I’ll fall apart.
I cannot be who you still think I am,
I never was who you thought I should be.
I cannot lie to myself anymore,
I cannot keep the secret you make me.
Myself from myself this fog cannot hide;
This will never pass me by as you wish,
This is not some fleeting fancy or whim.
Let not me hide from it’s fast whirling winds.
