In the shadow of my silence
is where I find myself
buried deep inside
like a hidden treasure

can you see the depths of my soul
when it’s hidden from the world?
or are you still searching
trying to find my core?

I exist only for you
a lover that’s forgiven
casting me aside
for a love that’s forbidden

my love for you
was etched in stone
even long before
our secrets searched alone

I see only in color
when I look through your eyes
the shades of black and white
only fade when I close mine.

  1. Sigh… this is absolutely beautiful, CC. I can feel the push and pull; the inner conflict that rages. We often deny ourselves because we’ve already made a promise to another. This one speaks deep to my core. You’ve outdone yourself here. ❤ ❤ ❤
