Sssshhh! Can you keep a secret?
I’m afraid I cannot hide it anymore –
It’s building up, stone by stone.
To you whom I keep an unknown,
Burning passion – as revolting
Though it might be, and as taboo as can be
I desire your hands around me
To you whom I ardently hate
With your unsightly face and
One day I shall let you know –
But for now I’d bother with a poem
And you who dislike me,
Or loathe or whatever
This I say to you:
You who loves me,
Do you really? How do I know?
Have I been passing in your life
for far too long?
You whom I love greatly, in this life
And the after life
Please love me back as fiercely
A secret desire to dominate
A secret desire to be submissive,
Deep, dark secrets
Snaking in, as sinister as the Amazon
We are all pretentious humans
We can never be true enough
Want a secret? I’ll tell you one!
A secret is something you can never keep
So spit it out and let’s hear it!
Try as you may to hide one,
It leaks out of you – through your eyes,
Movements, jumbled words, and in poems
Without you knowing!
An angel and devil incarnate,
As honest as a liar can get,
Ssshhh! Can you keep a secret?
I’m afraid I’ll expose them as well as myself —
