Conscience Keeps



Hidden in shadows
where dimness masks
are lovely secrets where conscience basks

Hidden in shadows
where dimness daunts
are dirty secrets where conscience haunts

Hidden in shadows
where dimness wiles
are lofty secrets where conscience smiles

Hidden in shadows
where dimness bends
are grisly secrets where conscience rends

Hidden in shadows
where dimness screens
are holy secrets where conscience gleans

Hidden in shadows
where dimness cloaks
are ugly secrets where conscience pokes

Hidden in shadows
where dimness creeps
are pretty secrets where conscience keeps
