Secrets & Lies

To keep a secret we must tell a lie,
To protect ourselves,
Yet each day we sigh.
Our eyes don’t meet,
It’s better that way,
We ignore each other,
Day after day.

The ignorance is bliss it keeps us safe,
Turning Away from truth,
Restoring our faith,
Faith once lost from the lies and the sleuth,
We forget what we knew,
I carry on my life and so do you.
