"To my lover returning to her husband"

It's raining hard on my heart -
A rain of all those tears
We can never dare to shed
There is a steady flowing
Deep down inside of me
That drowns my very soul

Closing the light and locking the door
To that place that's only yours
Silence rushes over me
Sealing my lips forever
Holding my tongue to seal my fate
Resigned in my secret muteness

Barricading the next visitor
Climbing the doorsteps to my heart
Though I do keep on believing
And keep on dreaming this dream
What I feel now is everything
Still a posting across my heart:

"No Vacancy"
