Between Us

It seemed a thing between us,
reminded of three simians sitting,
legs crossed and hands in familiar poses.

This is not the way we share;
Our friendship, love, and touch is based on more.
Open your eyes and make clear your ears, and I will tell you of my secret life.

Actions and attributes not of the man I planned to be,
They are the true, sad, longing, and oft regrettable deeds of true me.
A secret that I can no longer bear, flooding out in gasps and sobs and tears.

From you a smile, not quite uderstanding, but relief.
This formerly untold life now exposed does not corrupt our love.
What's between us is no more a secret, a thing dividing; it is a thing we now share.

Truth exposed, we stand both hands clasped, naked trust.

Well done!

So glad I found this poem. So lovely, it gives out comfort from your friendship.

Like a painting that demanded to be spread on the canvas, it was in my mind demanding to be put here at the time. I also am glad you found this, because I had forgotten about it, and now it is something shared between us.

I hope you are doing well, KS. I have been thinking about your getting back to normal. Glad to have made you smile.

Thanky you Andrew and Jeanne. It is ba<x>sed in truth, so a secret that can be whispered the same way twice or three times.

I like this very much. Been a while, my friend.

I enjoyed it.

I like this.
