Hush-Hush

Secrets destroy fragile security

A thin thread unraveling

Always looking behind

Meaning to words searching

For signs of infidelity

Real or imagine

Hush- Hush

Secrets hurt the unsuspecting soul

Trying to read the expressions on a face

Is it telling me what I need to know?

Hush- Hush

Second-guessing has taking

Place of asking questions

That is never answered straight

Hush- Hush

Secrets my imagination runs wild

What's hiding inside your mind?

Behind the fake smile

Hush- Hush

Polite sidestepping tiptoeing around

careful not to be found, caught in the web

Of Machiavellian actions created

By the secrets you keep

Hush- Hush

You know, I can't really help my smile. I'm drawn: a drawing. Love the poem, E.K.

Secrets do tend to create "Machiavellian actions". Thank you
