The secret I have is quite dark, that's why its hidden.
Far, far below the edge of my skin.

Shoved away in a place that is guarded so dearly.
Only one person I have  let in too see my thoughts clearly.

She sees that most of the words are jumbled and mixed up.
But one thing shines through clearly and that is the love.

My love for him is forbidden and scary.
When it first started to appear I was quite wary.

He is too old for my age, so him I shouldn't behold.
But, my heart insisted, so I dismissed everything I was told.

So I told them that it died, that flame of longing from within.
But I know, inside my heart that I will always love him.
