She inquires
I deviate, uneasily.

She doesn’t know
I will not tell her
Intention is not to hurt her

For I love her

Still why it happens?
I wonder, lost in the world away
I do not have all answers
For who can claim to know the whole truth?

‘Don’t bother, take it easy’
Her casual remark, stroking my hair,
Brings me back to present

It takes us both closer to God
Closer to Truth

She certainly loves me more

OSI Prompt : Clandestine

Well penned. Your poem outlines the struggle of love and ambiguity in a relationship. In the end, how to relate to one another and come closer together.
