Secret Lovers - Poem by Sylvia Chidi

They stand in black and white
Amongst the oblivious crowd
Harmonously bowing
Laughter feels the air
Whispers are spoken without a care
Loving eyes staring on glowing on the theatre set

Stolen passionate grunts and moans
Unknown to the other, one is on the run
Living two live's, weaving her way as a con
Secret lovers make their return

One loves passionately
The other takes arrogantly

Last night, there was a feeling of plight
She came back early
Tears of disappointment flooded her face
What she had just witnessed was an utter disgrace

'I thought you were mine'
'I thought we were fine'
'I really think you are out of line'
She cried out with tears of sorrow
Wishing suddenly that there was no tomorrow
The betrayal of a secret lover
In a minute her whole world turned upside down

What joy love brings
What hurt it sings
When it reaches the end of the ropes
And you find yourself facing the world alone

They call themselves secret lovers
For no one knows
How the story goes
