Secret Language


Secret Language

there's a secret smile, in the corner
of my mouth, these days
when I think of you
it's true

you know
you make me feel
good enough to be myself
I have no secrets from you, only

realms, awaiting

there's a secret language, that
springs from my heart
that only you

stories, explaining
all there is of me that's real

and you
feel me, in your dark
unyielding, I wield the light
that whispers, soothe, in your heart

that I hear your secret language
I am fluent in your suffering
murmer softly, stroking
I know you

and I,
love you so
very much simply because
there's a secret smile, in the corner of
my mouth these days
when I think of you
it's true, I'm

your friend
that's what I am...

Friends and lovers......hey, what could be better..........we all have that inkling, for a lover, deep down inside our hearts, and we know the special one knows it secretly too.............A truly wonderful verse, dear TP..............................................g



Thanks G :) I like the way you read that like a super secret language within a secret language? lol.... the secret language is poetry, and how we here share our hearts with each other through our writing :)

The true philosopher and the true poet are one, and a beauty, which is truth, and a truth, which is beauty, is the aim of both.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, American Poet (1803-1882)
