I fell in love and she mugged me Stole a brothers heart Told me that she loved me Showed me in the dark. A warm and accepting embrace A soft touch of to the lips While caressing my face. Had me lost in her essence Brother seeking escape In love ... Clouds ... Judgment Leaped out on Faith. Only to be broken by the tokens of Fate To know she loved but wasn’t in love In much the same way. For in the day that she realized my state Did she take my love for granted And cause a brother to panic. Nonetheless, I say she did it all with grace Placed my heart on a shelf Like a trophy in its case. Holding me close while at bay I suppose— I’m her best kept secret ...Never exposed.
