~Esther Mitchell, 1994~
Secrets sheltered in my heart,
Two lives, one existence, torn apart,
A purpose so good,
A heart so often misunderstood.
Secrets whispered in darkened corners,
A truth kept away from those who meant it harm,
A love held so pure and true,
Because its depth was one only we ever knew.
One day in the light of the sun,
A truth we would soon no longer hide,
‘Til Destiny’s hand drew another Fate,
A rise, a fall, one moment too late.
Now, fire paints my sky,
And I can’t even let them see me cry,
A love the world never knew,
A tragedy played out that day in the fire-streaked blue.
