Rafael Cazares

If Only You Knew

If only you knew,
the secret I had for you.
I've kept it safe, secured tightly to my bosom.
If only you knew,
Those nights, it'd jump & prance trying to find the right dance
that would liberate it from its skeletal cage.
If you knew,
how I always told myself, 'Never is the right time'.
If you noticed the miniature moments our eyes evenly remained,
Nothing existed outside your frame.
Then Understand, every time our eyes meet,
remain truthful to yourself.
