Hidden Love

You knocked, and I opened the door of my life The welcome mat to my heart took in your first steps You crossed the threshold and my strong foundation weakened with the weight of your words, your touch, your kiss When you held me, all my broken pieces melted together As we entertained the thought of being together An emotional bond built on trust fueled a desire we couldn’t deny While storms raged outside, threatening to wreck our world I lay in bed wondering if you will come back to me Two lovers denied the night, stealing moments in their days A fire still burns inside of me, the glow of passion smolders deep within You occupy the rooms of my soul yet I feel so abandoned A house whose walls hold secrets not meant for others to hear We left the doors and windows wide open The breeze whispers through, echoing your name The clock on the wall still chimes as time marches on If I could stop it, I would, just for one more moment with you It’s a place I visit often, but it’s not the same without you there
