SECRET

TREECARVING

Your name was carved in my heart
Long before I fell in love

Its sound rolled as velvet in my tongue
Its form gave art to my hand.

And yet, and yet no one knew
About this spell that turns my day
From gloom to magic in a breath

This secret I buried, deep within,
Lest thoughtless ears spirit it away
Leaving myself exposed
To heartbreak and disdain.

How long can passion be suppressed
Until its steam rises to the surface and overflows
My lips shaped the contours of your name
and engraved them  in the air

that wherever the wind blows

my love will be there.
