Love Locked Away


She hid her love for way too long.
She would not let it show.
She walked alone on lonely paths
where colorless flowers grow.

She kept her love inside her heart
where silently it grew.
She roamed alone among tall trees
where silent birds all flew.

And when at night she lay abed
she cried inside her mind.
She slept alone with lonely dreams
where love was left behind.

The flowers were colorful, birds did sing
but they were not seen nor heard.
For all of her lonely dreams at night
left her heart unstirred.
