Secrets

Care not for obsolete ….. secrets
for all secrets are obsolete
   ….. and always have been …..

Keep not those double-edged ….. secrets
for all secrets are double-edged
   ….. and always have been …..

Allow not any guilt tinctured ….. secrets
for all secrets are guilt tinctured
   ….. and always have been …..

Begone those stygian daggers
      whose unsheathed codes
      pierce heart and sever soul
depart all birring Wraiths!

Treasure instead those
   exquisitely disguised horizons
      eternally carved as ….. pure
   whose precise definition would shatter
upon any clear reveal

Those ….. honourific paragons
   unqualled in character

Those ….. bountiful puzzles
   unsolved throughout eternity

Those ….. promises of integrity
   unrivalled as virtues

Those ….. radiant pleasures
   undiscovered within beauty

Enigmas to be engaged
   never fastened to …..
      perpetually fascinated by…..
         breathlessly enamoured with …..

whispered cyphers
   within fog and dew
transparent reflections
   midst prism and rainbow
frothy rhythms
   betwixt littoral and surf
momentary breaths
   ‘tween aurora and eventide

Sigh for her Solitude
Cypher his Silence

Coupled heartbeats withstand all …..
   ….. secrets …..

This is the final poem of a somewhat unplanned trilogy which includes previous posts entitled Silence and Solitude.
