One-Eyed Shy (sECRETS)

One-eyed-shy,


drifting by night,


leaving flight as his wingman.


He asked her to dance,


perhaps glance


into the dark of her heart


and harken the nights


graceful push and pull plight.


She graced his one-eyed-shy disguise,


fueling the range


pursuing the chase


feeling her grace,


her holy trinity amongst the moonlight


in the moonlit shrine of beggars,


saints with thievish dispositions


layered with turmoil


like so many autumn leaves,


One-eyed-shy and glimpsing,


he parted ways,


counting days upon graceless days


the secrets he kept


inside her push and pull moonlit face,


shattering matter


with each step he takes


with darkness apt and full.


The secrets we keep chill the dead,


bringing them back to life


with a cool whisper,


or wistful dance


be it the dancer


or the song,


never knowing the answer,


only one-eyed-shy


with night in the distance


where dissapearance


is vitally indifferent,


shaking away the chains and secrets.
