A Thought for Every Word

Unbidden Tears

You come to me and take my hand

gazing furtively over your shoulder

the shadow whisperers that follow

are hidden in secret doorways

 

Brushing your lips on my brow

pensive furrowed mouth speaks

low and comforting words

of babble to my anxious ears

 

I love you tumbles out and drops

on concrete steps to shatter

and splatter a million drops

covering your expensive shoes

 

The deed is done in dark alleys

watched by shadow whisperers

overheard by black crows

that fly and squawk the truth

 

Ours is not the light of day

to linger in and be seen

by those whose tongues

would loose arrows that sting

 

The sun touches the sky

your hand releases mine

and you turn and walk away

wiping shoes on pressed trouser cuffs
