the inside.

the inside.

“You keep a lot of secrets
And I keep none
Wish I could go back
And keep some”
. . . . Fireproof / The National

I tell you everything
I’m an open book
But your words are few
So much mystery
I want to trust you
And your love for me
But when you hold back
What lives inside you
I wonder what
You could be hiding
Then I see your smile
And you touch me
Your beautiful kisses
Make me tremble
And I forget
That I don’t know
What you’re thinking
I only know the pieces
You let outside
But I want
The inside too
Tell me more

  2. Very emotional! And I think many of us can relate, especially when you’re married to the strong, silent type 🙂

  5. Lovely write. It is disturbing when one person provides so much information and the other remains a mystery. I don’t think everything in one’s past needs to be revealed.

    Vey well written. I think it’s partially a guy thing. They jus don’t say as much out loud, specially what they “feel.” It takes them along time from my experience.
