this veil that drops down before me
i hide in its folds with a smile
you cannot see my eyes,
though my view of you is unhindered.

that is the way if it, this life
one of us has to stand naked,
you want it to be me this time
and you undress me with your eyes.

but the choice was made long before us
in a moment when two souls were born,
now we both stand here in this moment
always everything but present.

and i hold your heart in my hands
while you put mine in your pocket.

    I also got distracted by your reading list, very nice group of books, I’ve read something by Lily King-will have to go look for that one.
