- Amal Raju
Between you and me,
There lies a secret
That I’ll love you more than you’ll ever know
The aloofness merely a show
The neglect simply a shadow
Of what truly lies deep inside.
The secret is laughably one-sided
Being pushed aside
Every time it arose.
When it burns deep within my core,
When ignoring it more
Brought blind spots to my vision,
The light of your supernova
Has faded away.
And while I had dreaded the burn of your ray,
The deep desire mockingly laughs
Of how it’d feel
For my soul to be burnt for real.
In more ways than one
Better it ended soon
For I had desperately grasped your light
Ignoring what was within.
But like a child
Who dreams of a treat that had him riled
I wish for your caressing light
To fondle and whisper as those nights
When I slept peacefully
Believing in your presence trustfully.
I’ll love you more than you’ll ever know,
And there lies a secret,
Between you and me.
