I never really knew at least not for sure, an unspoken language between us.

And then it was over whatever ‘it’ was, somehow we knew without speaking.

I doubt we could say when our bond became real, our own cryptic code.

Our secret.

Sometimes I wondered if you felt it too, the karmic connection.

Our secret.

Weeks turned to months, words silently spoken, a year flew by.

Our secret.

Not a day went by that we didn’t connect, life continued to spin around us.

Our secret.

The sun would come up and you thought of me, you talked about that.

Your secret.

For me the moonlight brought you to mind, I told you that too.

My secret.

I hated your hair, you loved that I told you, my god how we laughed.

Our secret.

You tried to say you could drown in my eyes, but bumbled the words.

Our secret.

I had not realized I’d fallen so hard, my heart was blown open.

My secret.

I didn’t know if your heart fell too, maybe it did.

Your secret.

The depths of our feelings so afraid to acknowledge.

Our secret.

The argument, the apple, the strangers around us who witnessed the passion.

No secret.

The connection was right, the timing was wrong, life can be like that.

Our secret.

Sometimes we’d slip and say the word ‘we’, it wasn’t allowed.

Our secret.

We knew it was over, the flames got too close, it went undiscovered.

Our secret.

Today we happened to pass on the street, our eyes locked for too long.

And that’s when I knew.

You had loved me as much as I had loved you, we were so right.

The timing so wrong.

I summoned the courage to turn and look back.

You turned to look too, your eyes screaming with passion.

My heart beating too fast, I had to keep walking.

The seasons keep changing, feelings must remain dormant.

It must always stay,

Our secret.
