So there can be

Intimacy in thought

Our minds close

But our wills unknown

What impulses may

Divulge about beliefs

Relative to various hungers

They are intertwined

Our addictions unknown

Until the hook

Sets us down denial

Tiring to the surface

Our aches will be known

Like a fish on its side

Vulnerable even to itself.

From the author’s book Healing Hands of Women.
