The Secret the Darkness Completely Concealed

Plain White Toast She had a six-month rule, I only learned later
That was how long she’d let someone date her
Before she moved on, because her stories would unravel
She hated to be dumped, so she’d pack up and travel

But this time was different; she had another plan
Only later I learned, that she’d slept with another man
Without protection of course, and nature kicked in
She insisted it was mine and stop living in sin

I refused to get married on account of the baby
But I didn’t rule it out—after it’s born, well just maybe
We’ll see how we’re doing, and if our relationship grows
We’re not ready now, but in the future, who knows?

I’ll never forget what was revealed
The secret the darkness had completely concealed
I’ll never forget what was revealed
The secret the darkness had concealed
The secret the darkness had concealed

Mending our relationship was back on the table
We weren’t getting along, but some how we were able
To be civil at night, after we turned out the light
And do something together, instead of fight

We worked our way up to the rhythm we’d known
My abs rocked her belly that barely had grown
And she received every thrust with a passionate moan
Until suddenly they stopped, like she’d hung up the phone

And wet, I felt wet, more than any orgasm yet
But something was wrong, that I couldn’t interpret
So I asked her to tell me if she was alright
But all that I heard was the silence of the night

I’ll never forget what was revealed
The secret the darkness had completely concealed
I’ll never forget what was revealed
The secret the darkness had concealed
The secret the darkness had concealed

I asked her again and still got no reply
So, I gently got up and set out to try
To turn on a light, and see what was wrong
It was then that I wished that my stomach was strong

She’d miscarried her baby at the worst possible time
And the scene of our lovemaking now looked like a crime
The bed was a red puddle and the walls were all splattered
But she was still breathing and that’s all that really mattered

It took every ounce of my strength and remaining willpower
To distract her from shock as I cleaned her in the shower
I made her close her eyes while I scrubbed us both clean
I washed away more blood than I’d ever seen

I’ll never forget what was revealed
The secret the darkness had completely concealed
I’ll never forget what was revealed
The secret the darkness had concealed
The secret the darkness had concealed

I cleaned up the room as fast as I could
Losing this much blood couldn’t be good
I got her out of the shower and into her car
Even running red lights, the hospital seemed too far

It’s a time I now remember only as a life-lesson learned
Some sort of emergency merit badge I earned
I was tested that night to deal with severe trauma
And with that lesson learned, I’d had enough of her drama

But as bad as this experience has weighed on my soul
I know that it’s pulled me out of a very dark hole
Now I know I can handle what life throws my way
I can ignore all the blood and still do ok

I’ll never forget what was revealed
The secret the darkness had completely concealed
I’ll never forget what was revealed
The secret the darkness had concealed
The secret the darkness had concealed
