• I HAVE NOT KEPT •

I’m lost to why, I insist in wanting you
If to me, you do what you want to do
Beside you, I know so little about you
It’s from others that I really know you

All remains in me; I know everything!
From where you go. To what you do.

(Smile!) – ‘I hide my jealousy anyway’
– For, I have learned on the first day:
“My silence is worth more!” This way:
It brings you back to me another day

Then, as my gift; ‘I will gain your hug’
For a lift. Bribing my old desire’s bug
Yep! I veil my eyes to your every step
The last precious hug, ‘I haven’t kept’
