Ears Open Prompt…My Poem 3…..Don’t Tell

Don’t Tell

wordless

she hands it to me,

waiting.

Perhaps it isn’t real

unless someone else reads it,

believes it.

I do.

Her friend is a writer,

the poem is beautiful.

Promise you won’t tell.

Promise made,

would have kept,

until she read it.

Maybe this

is the moment

her fourteen-year

world, black and white,

shades toward gray.

Children

promise

not to tell,

no matter what.

What if

no matter what

means goodbye?
