Naked Cover-Up

I saw the way you looked at me

Before your eyes turned down.

I heard the quiver in your voice

Before its steadied sound.

I read your hesitation

Before your quickened pace.

I felt the extra seconds

Of your “casual” embrace.


You’ve learned to cover feelings

And tie them down with steel.

But, as long as your heart beats for me,

Neither one of us will heal.
