Secure distances

Dorothee Lang

If I told you the truth, would you
Understand it, he asked waiting
For her blank promise

Leaving her at a loss
At the corner of a street
In a maze of emotions

If I gave you the promise, would that
Change the way we walked
Away from each other

She replied later in thoughts,
In secure distance, far away
From possible answers

Dorothee Lang
