Bleed

Art by Anne Magill

Sometimes

when I feel

I have given too much

of myself away,

allowed observation

of the heart beneath,

revealed too much

of the soul within,

I fade into the shadows

and bleed silently

into the darkness.

Private Man

Man of Steel

Despite outward appearances

He is a very private man.

He is not one to boast or to crow.

He does not pretend to be what he is not.

He does not demand respect on the back of a self awarded title.

He does not indulge in public drama.

He does not harass or molest or stalk.

He does not reveal the identity of a lover

He does not betray secrets

He does not want or encourage sycophantic cults

He does not mail photographs of his body parts.

He does not claim to fuck like a stallion.

 

He is a very private man

And perhaps he is dull because of it.

But she knows his heart

And she adores him.
