Masquerade of Lovers

Swift, sweet kisses

Exchanged in the shelter of darkness

They hide in thick shadows,

Skirting around brick walls

They delve into nooks and crannies,

Scurrying from the sound of heavy footsteps

They exist for all to see,

Keeping the truth in their hearts

Under lock and key,

Never to be opened

They try so hard,

Messily muffling their feelings,

Holding them sacred from prying eyes

Deep down, they know,

All the people that would disapprove,

For the Bible says it should be so

So everyday they go on,

Silencing the piercing pain,

Actors in a twisted masquerade

If they act like it means nothing,

Maybe it’ll someday be true

Desperately they mask

Their forbidden romance,

Burying it in the sanctuary of night,

Keeping their love from plain sight
