My Darling, Still

That which I didn’t know was
possible until
you found me…
too late

I was your secret treasure
golden
in the glow of our love
No, I was your kept secret
locked
in shadow and shame

All I did was
love you
with my purest heart

I can’t even escape
into dreams–
it’s the only place
we were together

Nearly in tears
wanting
this picture we’d painted
of Us

Say those words to me, my love
again and again
our razor blade tears
become forgiveness
comforting as rain
washing both of us clean

    I have been in this impossible couplet too, and though it’s been over ten years, you brought it all back. Thanks for sharing this. Moskowitz

    into dreams–
    it’s the only place
    we were together

    Nearly in tears
    wanting
