Secrets we hold in spades

Whispering in the dark

Lurking like an absence

Within recesses of our minds.

While we pretend not to love

Because of the space between us.

Souls know no distance;

Love lives within us still.

A man with a mind

Took the very soul right out of me

Then whispered beauty

Into my very essence.

Built from the love we made

A fire that the world couldn’t put out.
