Secret Affair

My Broken Heart

Why do you smile at me

with that knowing stare

when you know

it’s my only weakness?


And all I want to do

is find ourselves a corner

away from this place

and escape with you.


I don’t want anyone

to see us like this;

it’s not that I’m afraid,

I just know it’s wrong.


I don’t want to start this,

because I know I won’t

have the willpower to

turn you away.


Keep your lovely grin

and leave me here

since I know I can’t

risk my heart to you.
