I hide in plain sight


interest
attraction
likeness
fondness
lust
desire
possesivness
need

see how I carefully try not to say it
see how I prance around it
how I hover like a vulture around a
kill, another animal's wounded prey
see how I don't mean it even as I say it
see how I hide my heart in plain sight

why?

because words are detrimental
words are broken spirits
words are fallen stars
words are extinguished fires
words are murky stagnant puddles, where
many dirty muddy boots tread
lovers don't use words
true lovers have nothing to say to each other.
