Secrets

The night holds tightly
To her secrets
She sits watch
Over all that is darkness
All of the quiet shame
That no daylight ought to see
She wraps her arms
Around
The cat and the crook alike
Moon shadow to moon shadow
Her enveloping embrace
Awaits
Whisper her the secrets
Love, lies, unreasonable desires
And know that
With encroaching dawn
She
With her covetous bounty
Will steal away
Her secrets
Safe within
