Courage, Heartbreak, Love, Pain

Partners

What is it about him
that makes me want
to tell him everything?
I keep secrets
from others, from myself,
but there’s something in him
that pulls me out,
strips away pretense,
demands a response.
Impossible to not hear,
to stifle my thoughts.
And yet, he doesn’t want
to hear me.
So why is it that all I want
is to talk to him
for hours? For what?
To be thrown over the gray stone wall again
smashing on the rocks below?
All emotion, no communication.
No partnership, then,
no matter how much I dream.
