I PROMISE YOU


I will not betray you;
I'll not give
your secrets
away.
Safe haven
is yours
to keep,
forever
in here
with me.

Thoughts spill
over and
under and
around,
tumbling upon
each other,
spoken in
soft tones,
written in
whispers and
tucked away.

Words live,
dulcet
on the
tongue
and
once
we taste them,
we breathe,
sighing with
consolation and
hope.

Unspoken questions
hang suspended
in mid air...

...do you
understand me?
do you feel
my ache,
my need,
my anguish?

I will never betray you;
I dare not, lest
the stars fall
into your eyes
and die.
