Eyes wide open an image becomes clear

Of reason and motive behind the decision you hear

Far from the normal expression of wish

Lies darker motive to fashion a rift

What now is done can only ever remain

An unspoken malice for which 2 share the blame

A shallow attempt to paper over the cracks

Of spaces left empty through what a life lacks

With no intervention it should pass unseen

Remain hidden from sight and leave dirty hands clean

No fall out or fuss due to the tricks being played

The hurt where intended is where it shall stay
