I have a secret message

a covert skill 

I am 

conversant with,

I have written you a million times 

scribbled you secretly 

nipped and tucked

you in my verses

hiding from the prying eyes

folded neatly between the pages

of my poetry 


secretly under the 

poetic verses

you can find my eternal love

dripping in those context clues

draped in the veil 

of words and lyrics

 Hidden behind those 

similes and metaphors

lays my love for you

You can pronounce me the


only if you knew,

So if you really seeking me

as I have longed you forever,

come read my poetry

and peek inside those syllables

to find a reflection of you

I’m trying to hide forever.

  1. This is it! This is what we do as poets… we write our deepest feelings and emotions within our words, leaving clues for those to whom they are written. Gorgeous sentiment!!!!!

      1. Yes , Because I’m involved in editong two major anthologies by two different press, a chapbook and another project this time. So I get less time to post on the blog but thanks for keeping an eye for that. I will get back to posting more once this projects come to fruition.


      2. Okay, when I follow something I like, I follow well enough to notice.
        I wish you so much good fortune in your projects. You have the writing part down😇🙏🏾
