Loving you in secret;

Causing me this pain,

I am bitter and so jealous;

Somehow, I can’t explain.

 

I have to hush these feelings;

A cure is out of range,

Because no matter what I say;

Frankly, it won’t change.

 

This is a risk I took;

Yes, I am aware,

But sometimes it’s just too much;

And it seems unfair.

 

I know the feeling’s mutual;

For you want to be with me,

I am scared of being candid

Because perhaps you won’t agree.

 

And now I feel so helpless;

Vulnerable it seems,

The only life I share with you;

Is only in my dreams.
