Covering up

I don’t sing songs that speak of eternal love,

for my heart beats with its sweet melody.

I don’t write sweet love stories either

for words fail to express their melancholy.

I have stopped getting decked up for my lover

for he revels in my simplicity.

And I bottled up all the expressions inside

lest the world knows my tragedy.
