What Nobody Knew

SusanMarie Shuman/ SusanWritesPrecise

It’s Quadrille Monday over at the dVerse Poets Pub. Today, our prompt is the word ‘keep.’

From that first night

I wanted to keep you.

Then, in the dirty-light of day

it became clear:

you already had a home.

What nobody knew

(not even you!)

is that I kept you anyway


in the tenderest place

of my heart.
