She kept her beauty concealed behind a curtain of suspense
And endures her fate, moulded by an ancient culture

The honour wasn't allowed to be injured
She is going to live as her community expects her to
I find myself confined between furtive desires and feelings of guilt

[The letter:]
These are my last words
I'm gonna leave you
I can't stand your narrow mindedness any longer
Forgive me...

    General CommentI think it's about a woman (possibly muslim) trying to break free from the constrictive rules of her religion and/or an abusive partner by running away.

    Many things point to that it's a muslim woman, "beauty concealed behind a curtain" (the burqas they have to wear in some communities), "ancient culture", "honour", desire + guilt (religion often condemns desire).
