It’s a maze of secrets all around you
Bearing a badge of faith to be true
The secrets are along the narrow pathways
Where the darkness from memory plays.
Certain dark things lay in between
Eternal, changeless and unseen
Amidst the shadow and your soul
Glows your bosom like a coal.
You keep the rarest type of beauty
Bathed in flaming founts of duty
Pieces of yourself hidden inside
Just enough for the heart to reside.
No one knows what you are
A plight of love or a knight of war
As you wear a mask to hide yourself
And taking your heart off the shelf.
Sometimes you suffocate and choke up
Trying to catch the dropping Crimson cup
And then you’re at peace for saving the day
Wishing you had wings to fly away.
Locked into your mind so, so strong
Reaching to ends where you belong
Protected within your private domain
Holding your dark secrets in continuous reign.
