Hearts In Armor

 

silent, i breathe you in,
afraid to make any noise
for fear i will be found
out and i'll have to deny
that any of it means any
thing.

i paint my eyes with detachment,
my lips with unconcern, i dress
my heart in armor, invulnerable
to cupid's arrows, letting no
one see how they pierce it.
