Secrets as dark as the night,
Regretful pasts locked in their cages and trying to take flight.
Hopelessness trapped away from everybody,
Just like the dark side of the moon,
Our dark side nobody can see.
Cowardice cloaked by a thin veil,
While some others have blood red courage hidden beneath.
A tender heart,
Covered in steel.
Memories that age,
Like the dried autumn leaves.
Happiness soaring through the blue sky,
Tears too, pouring and soaking our smiles.
The things we hide,
We can’t bid goodbye.
