Or how about Hide Your Love Away by John Lennon?

Here I stand, head in hand
Turn my face to the wall
If she's gone I can't go on
Feeling two foot small

Everywhere people stare
Each and every day
I can see them laugh at me
And I hear them say:

Hey, you've got to hide your love away
Hey, you've got to hide your love away

How can I even try?
I can never win
Hearing them, seeing them
In the state I'm in

How could she say to me
"Love will find a way"?
Gather round, all you clowns
Let me hear you say:

Hey, you've got to hide your love away
Hey, you've got to hide your love away


Hiding your feelings of love and attraction for others from your mate... it just doesn't work, if your mate is at all sensitive and perceptive and intuitive. Fear of loss is a biggie. Many of us experienced in poly try to see life as one of abundance, not scarcity.
