Epiphany, poetry by Coleen van Staden at Spillwords.com



written by: Coleen van Staden



I read between the lines
of your face
and find things once hidden from me
plain as day
The words we never spoke now ring more true
than any vows we said
or any song we called our own

You glow in the dark
and by the light I peel back layers of our life together
to reveal
in one pure moment
your betrayal
My love, this moment of knowing is exquisite
and a sweet comfort to me

I see the beginning of a smile
where your breath once played
I put the gun down gently
to take a closer look.
