The Red and the Blue

By far the hardest task I've ever faced
is loving you but leaving all unsaid
keeping my heard protectively encased
in cool blue friendship, not in love's blood red.

The words I'd utter were I free to speak
quietly congregating in my eyes
are written in saltwater on my cheek -
an ink so faint they can't be recognized.

I wonder if you'd be at all surprised
by the secrets carried within my heart.
Perhaps you know the role I have devised
and see right through me as I play my part.

Blue is the color of seas and of skies;
red is the color of passion and lies.
