When I pulled The Curtains

When I pulled The Curtains

When I pulled the curtains I secretly kept what I saw to myself,
Because the pain was too much to bare after the sins beyond.
To tell anyone might inflict the scars that will never heal again,
So till do us part I wait to see you in private beyond the city pond.

A sense of cowardliness has since entered my troubled thoughts,
Yet I know that these wounds are too wide to close with shame.
Only you during these meetings of embracing hearts in love,
Can make those things less frightening though I’ll never be the same.

For what is a man that cannot talk with words from such an ordeal,
And to have to bare these acts that have blinded the lenses of my eyes.
I don’t know how you can tolerate my behavior gone silent in retreat,
Forcing me to suffer in your presence while my metal stage is in demise.

When I pulled the curtains I secretly kept what I saw to myself,
As your talking fingers whispered me to keep a promise if I cared.
I might not be able to announce the news with my handicapped lips,
But as I touch your face with my hands I sense your eyes continue to stare.

My mind is sound and my heart is pure as I struggle to love you more,
Knowing that at any moment someone might come and take you away.
Only us that communicate to each other in our secret language talk,
Will ever know that inside of us we already eloped to dream in order to stay.

Someday our minds will find their way to keep us united forever more,
As these ropes and chains deprive us of our love to grow with its wealth.
So please touch me, hold me, kiss me, hug me and relieve my pain from,
When I pulled the curtains I secretly kept what I saw to myself.
