A Hidden Love

None will see,
none will know.
The shadows are my only confidants,
as I escape to see my love.
Stolen glances,
hopeful kisses,
hurried goodbyes.

When will it end?
When will the secrets,
the lies,
the hiding...
Come to an end?

I dream of it,
the day I can come out of the shadows.
The day I stop lying,
I stop hiding,
The day my love and I can be together.
No walls.
No shadows.
No secrets.

But part of me knows
That day will never happen.
It is forever stored into my imagination,
only to be pulled forth when I am in need of hope.
But only to be stored away again
When I realize that It will never be so.
