conceal…no more

§

you look into my eyes

and

i wonder what you see.

am i the person standing in front of you

or

some other someone who sets you free?

§

please tell me who i am,

so

i can decide on what to do –

live with a lie each night of my life

or

quite simply walk away from you?

§

BUT

§

of course you will not be truthful,

because you are a coward

and

afraid –

that if the truth is revealed,

you will lose your rock:

your loyal domestic

and

risk being flayed.

§

the truth is

i WANT you to say it,

say what it is,

say what it is YOU feel –

because this life we are living is full of deceit

and

this hurt inside –

i can NO longer conceal.

      As I told richard, he is right. It is very sad, but I believe it is a sad reality for many people, xx
