Verses Undone: The Secret

I have never seen your face
Is it really a piece of such disgrace?
I’ve only seen you from behind,
What is this secret you try to hide?
But the secrets that you hide seem more like lies being covered up
Such as this
Keeping your mouth shut
Because so many things just don’t work out when you’re not around
We don’t seem to click like we used to and it’s driving us further apart
It hurts me in the heart
Roses are red, violets are blue
I did my best at loving you
This filthy little secret
Do you trust me enough to keep it?
Your life is a beautiful denial
On which you shall stand trial
Behind your beautiful eyes
Tell me,
What is this secret you try to hide?
