For the First Time

Feburary 28th, 2011

I was honest and resolved;

Knowing, certain, strong.

But knowing keeps longing around,

Denying breaks my solid ground.

Is self-restraint a virtue when all it does is shy love away?

Again and again?

How much was acted?

How much was lied?

If one thing is certain.

It’s that I should have told you sooner

How I didn’t feel within your song,

A melody to score future reflexes

To grab love by its first notes,

A tree saved from painful timbering,

A garden set with clear eye lines.
