Our Dirty Secret

A love shrouded in shadows,
Lust dampened by the sun,
I wish that I could hold you close,
In front of everyone.

Whispered words, lost in the dark,
Deep kisses in the night,
The love we share, how they'd despair
We must keep out of sight.

Icy stares conceal our passion,
The hidden flame of desire,
Biting words and steely tongues,
Suppress our inner fire.

For now we must hide away,
A love that's meant to be,
But one day soon, tall and proud,
We'll stand, just you and me.
