I tell myself that the secrets

and the sneaking around

are all necessary evils

so I don’t make a sound.

All the lies that are told

and the schemes that are made

are only for your benefit

and soon, they will all fade.

It seems like so much work

to trick and to deceive

but when we yell, “surprise,”

I hope that you don’t leave.
