Secrets

 

I know

your secrets

the kind the world

would kill for

the kind a woman

would die for

 

I know this

about

you

 

I know your weaknesses

the kind the world

would exploit

the kind a woman

would cherish

 

I know this

about

you

 

I hold your heart

although as yet

you do not know

it has been stolen

but I know this

and you suspect this

about

me

“and the greatest of these is love”

 

with time we have become

in/ti/mate

the lovers’ quarrels

necessary steps

faux pas

mis/take/s

misread intentions

unspoken love

too shy to reveal

all

 

we learned we cannot read

each other’s minds

 

all the while

fearful of faulty connections

sexy repartee

(with more than one)

jealousy of lovers

sparring, not understanding

this dance of love

 

we are at a crossroad

 

we’ve talked

and sang

and danced

and lived a life

of joy and light

in/ter/linked with pain

and hurt

and anger

 

we live in faith

we walk in hope

but our legacy

what is pre-ordained

will forever be

our love
