Hidden Hearts


Half truths – half lies,

Reality bites,

Reality stings,

You know what that means.

We play hide and seek

Scared to reveal… our vulnerable hearts,

We were hurt at least once

Some even more

Wounds heal but scars sore

And we learn to wear masks,

Shielding our hearts,

We create a disguise

And pretend we are fine,

Searching for love – bonds built on trust,

We jump and we fall,

Grasping the hope – we get up again

One more ring on the chain that’s holding our hearts

Safe deep inside…

Heavy… but better than being fully crushed,

We keep our fake smiles – inside and out –

Hopelessly trying to figure it out.

We look for the answers…. We look for the light,

Desiring a bond that could heal our hearts.

An honest connection unleashing the love,

We yearn for it daily, falling apart,

We want someone to notice

The truth that we hide…
