Kept Covert In Your Heart

Although meekness is my weakness,

someday my pride will soar.

And I will find the strength to speak with you in length

of our divorce and more.

These words ring true when far from you

and batten in my heart,

but their efficacy when ’round you escapes me

and this tears me apart.

It could be thee, though more so me,

who burdens on me woe.

This childish game we play ’tis cruel in every way…

I’m certain this you know.

Although cynical and quizzical

sly words are your fortress,

I hear in these a tone, a distant longing groan

for our lost devoutness.

I know that you will not state “True!”

This game you live to lark.

And I’ll remain as coy as the imprisoned boy

kept covert in your heart.

Although meekness is my weakness,

someday my pride will soar.

And I will find the strength to speak with you in length

of our divorce and more.
