Poem for the Day:

“behind closed doors”

you told me over the telephone
to keep this behind closed doors
I’m not even to hold your hand
even strolling the produce stands
must keep this love undercover
you’re too afraid of what others
may gossip and say behind our backs
but I’m not worry about that
so what? we are two of a kind
and at least in my own mind
you’re the one I want to spend
days traversing all over continents
painting the sky in vivid hues
can’t you see – I only want you
but you rather keep me in closets
that no one will ever bother
like winter blankets, worn and old
never used until you’re cold
