At any given time,
there are always
two men
in my heart:
and the one I’m with.

And nobody knows.
Nobody can tell
because I give it my all
and love him
with all of me,
more than any other woman can.

But I know.
And I know it only takes
my seeing you
you coming by,
God knows why
and no matter how long
or how much
I’ve built
with anyone else,
I’d come running back
to your arms
if you’d take me.

I spend
the essence of my soul
on every love that comes my way
secretly waiting for you
to bust in through the door
to take me away.

But you never do.
And the secret is safe.
