Transparent Hearts

Their hearts were transparent
And as delicate as glass.
Everyone could see right through them
From chamber to chamber
Through artery to artery.

They had transparent hearts.
As cold as now.
As hard as then.
So easy to see through.
Everyone could see right through them.

It was difficult for them to keep a secret
When all of their heart was so transparent and clear.
Yet, they had their secrets.
So many secrets that they kept
And never would share.

And no one ever saw those secrets
Hiding in plain sight inside
Their transparent hearts.
