shapes of desire

shapes of desire vanish when any speak
who know the meaning of the empty place
where others keep the secrets of the face
but no one wants to either work or seek
the answers that will still defy critique
so much depends on keeping up the pace
and what desires we reject or embrace
that it is easy just to call us weak
the symbol's more than just another rag
no music means so much nor any word
is clearer than the one that's uttered now
we keep the better secrets in the bag
and do not speak of all that we have heard
the heart is silent that much we allow
