Secret Feelings

She walks in a daze,
hoping he doesn't realize
the torment she hides
beneath the familiar pain
of heartbreak.

She realizes he pretends
to be someone he is not,
hiding behind mere words
banning her from public view,
attempting to keep his feelings secret.

Yearning to be free
from this nice girl label
he pinned on her years ago,
she satisfies a secret craving,
fine tuning his heart to hers,
making him understand the importance
of putting someone first.
