Emotions play on feelings from within:
Your deepest thought is hidden like a sin;
But, should the world behold your feelings true,
You’d swear that none of them belonged to you.
What makes us lie concerning what we thought?
Is it the shame of feeling we’ve been caught
By prying minds of those we do not trust
Who would not understand that love is not just lust?
If you and I could only live as one,
We’d love forever, until our lives were done.
(written in 1975)
