The Secret

by Brigitte Elko

A Deep Secret Contest Winner 
The secret is carried and buried in our hearts. The love that eases our stale minds as we think of moments shared, not carnal events but soul bending talks.

We have always been there for each other, come hell or high water. With tied hands, we shared intently all our dreams and woes. The sorrow in your eyes stays with me; it was sown by the inability to swoop me away to better times. My eyes, you behold, as being dimmed by unfulfilled dreams.

We are two committed people, you to God and me to a husband. Vows are promises made and are binding forever. Shackles of choices made are a part of us. The "us" that will never be known by others. An undying love is our secret hidden behind my wedding ring and your starched clerical collar. Shh...we'll never tell.

God hears us as we whisper in unison," Lead us not into temptation..."
