My Secret is Out

Just an ordinary conversation
A normal day – nothing special.
Suddenly, as if from nowhere,
You leapt out!

A magical pixie of words.
You danced my secret
Step by step across the grass.
Gleeful, bold, determined.
Colourful, resolute, charismatic.
Drawing absolute attention
To yourself and my hidden world.

I sat, stunned by such audacity.
Caught, poised at the risky edge
Of utter surprise and vulnerability
And the first pulse of new hope.

Words that I had not intended
Gave voice to my longing.
The invisible turning visible.
The buried, silent yearning
Had found a life of its own.
