The Night Wanderer

Secrets In The Dark - Poem by The Night Wanderer

Each night
I peer out my window
To watch him stride
With grace
Down the street
And past my window

Who I am not allowed to look at
Who I am prohibited to speak of
Who I am forbidden to speak to
And Him
Who I am definitely not permitted to think of

Although I break two of these ruls
Every night
As I hide behind my curtains
In my dark room
Taken over by curiosity
That will
Without doubt
Stop the beating of my longing heart

As danger wanders
The dimly lit street
His eyes drifting along drawn curtains
And closed windows
And I know
What I was never meant to know

I know his secret.
