Day 104 – Like Poison Spreading

Like poison spreading, suspicion
is difficult to unroot. I could not
untangle the shades of meaning
of what you were able to express
because I saw ghosts
let out of your mouth,
dancing behind your eyes,
I saw the words you wanted to say
and wondered why, of all your secrets,
there were any you would try to keep
from me.
