Secrets, as they always are               (published Remark, October 2007)

I tell you my secrets
The ones I have never shared
You sit cross legged on the couch
Facing me
I stare out into the blackness
    Talking, sharing

But I’m lying to you
   –That never happened to me
   –I never thought that until now
   –I may fear that
           but it’s a surface fear

In the dark I make myself cry
Knowing this makes you think
You love me more
But I don’t reach out to you
Or finally face you
Or turn on the light

I am trying to find my real secrets
The ones I have hidden so deep
I can’t touch them myself

For tonight, though, I guess these lies will do
And I will hide that secret, too

           (I love you)
