Back Next Her

Finally he opened up
and told the whole truth of himself
to her who sat opposite to him
he held back nothing
poured it all out
and surrendered in deep trust
to the person before him.
When she died
the truth of himself
and the love he possessed
lay with the worms
and the dust
in the grave
in which his
was buried
