All That Is Hidden Within

35 seconds

You look at me

With your honest eyes,

Golden specks dancing in the light,

And say, “I know you.

I know who you are

And what you want from life,

I know the sound of your cries

As much as your laugh.

I know what lies beneath.”

I look at you,

The beauty you are,

The genuine goodness in your heart,

And I say, “That’s true.”

I smile through the lie,

Keeping the truth locked away,

The words that I cannot say

If I don’t want to see you cry.

It burns my tongue to keep silent.

I want you to know me,

Every secret that lies beneath,

But with a smile so bittersweet,

I remain a liar.


Hey there, I'm Nat! I'm the author behind princesandfrogs, and as you can probably guess, I really love writing. So I thought why not share some of my original content here, in this quiet corner of the internet :3 If you'd like to take glimpses through the keyhole of my world, you're welcome to stay! Get yourself a nice cup of tea, and here we go!
