Don't Pretend and Hide


I talk in stanzas and verse
Some might say it’s a curse
Others will say it’s a blessing
Even though what I say is depressing

I can’t help my lyrical spiel
It just happens to be what I feel
I don’t mind if it makes you sad
Just as long as you can’t say it’s bad

Cause’ you know what I write is great
You tried but you lost that debate
These words and rhymes are true
No one knows this better than you

Secretly by your night light
You read everything I write
You memorise my every verse
Making your secret addiction worse

Don’t try and blame it on me
I wasn’t the one who made you see
That this is all more than just
Some stupid writings about love and lust

I’m glad you were able to open your eyes and see
That this could work for me
That I could live off this
That it was worth the risk.

poet Hilaire Belloc

Matilda told such Dreadful Lies,
It made one Gasp and Stretch one's Eyes;
Her Aunt, who, from her Earliest Youth,
Had kept a Strict Regard for Truth,
Attempted to Believe Matilda:
