Love’s Secret Fire

To love you in clandestine, A conflagration that incinerates me within. The birds’ melodious symphony fades to silence, As your song reverberates in my soul.

Touch me, and I shall be consumed by your passion, A ravenous flame that devours me whole. From deep within, my heart cries out to you, But the shackles of our circumstance paralyze our souls.

We cannot speak of our love, Like statues of salt, lovers frozen in time. I turn to you, and my heart skips a beat, But my lips remain sealed, my voice lost in the din.

Why, then, do you wait for me?

I am stone, I am still, I am forever lost in your gaze.
