The Secret


The wind wailed and

we were two flames reaching,

driven, bent,

it was never a dance, but it did

hold a beat, I suffered,

greatly,

constrained,

gasping,

each breath a war cry!

We saw the front lines, shared each

bitter loss. It was the night that

taught patience and the sun

opened our eyes –

we would burn and burn out,

taste first death and then life. Take a chunk

of this soul – Then take more,

Take these words….

For this is the secret that circles the earth –

I’d do it again,

over and over for you.
