Trying To Hide A Fire In The Dark

Trying To Hide A Fire In The Dark short poem

Well and what is it I see in your eyes…
Is it love or is it desire…
What is it that keeps us from giving?
Into the fire, is it the fear of getting?
What you want then not wanting it
Anymore…well how long can we walk
These real high wires, how long can we
Go on playing this game…we aren’t
Children anymore so isn’t it about
Time to say just what’s on our
Minds…well they say the truth will
Set you free and this has been
Going on so long I doubt anything
Could possibly change…you’ve
Always had my heart and in my
Secret fantasy you just seem to
Fit the part, ‘cuz every time our eyes
Meet it’s like trying to hide a Fire
In The Dark…every time, every time
The keeper of time finds us here
Again and again, it’s Like Trying To
Hide a Fire in the Dark…A Fire
In The Dark!
