Speak Softly

Speak Softly

Whisper your confession
and
I might
unbox my heart
for you.
And then we are
bare,
if nothing else,
equal strangers;
secret keepers.

Swallow
the key to
my heart
and
I’ll sing
the canon of
my sins.
Will we ever be
more
than
vulnerable?
Simple lovers;
life sharers?

If you lose
my
heart, I’ll
have my soul
left to me.
I hope I’m as
bad
at forgiving
as loving.
Then I’ll
eternally
long for your shadow.
The lonely wolf;
and her Empress.
