Traitor

February 5, 2008
By Na'Tia Rashee, Lexington, KY

I begged my heart
to keep it’s silence
Of my love for you
But what a traitor
My heart is
To beat so loud
Near you

I prayed my eyes
Would go blank
I prayed they would not shine
Another’s eyes would have listened
But what a deceitful pair
Are mine

You know my secret
Fine
