A Thousand Secrets

 

photo by Nichole Q Perreault

 In secret

She lives

but barely

Hiding 

always behind painted eyes

and heavy hair

She tucks a strand 

over her ear

Runs a finger 

down

smoothing

the blackness

down

Fingertip

grazing

her neck

Skin 

Brushing skin

Her eyes rise 

to yours

glistening

like black opal

She smiles

a smile 

that knows 

a thousand secrets

You 

only care 

about

one
