Reckoning

by Delilah

Pretending comes easy

Reckoning much harder

Talking in riddles

We smother this fire

Love beckons me

As I know it does you

Calling our names

It mocks us with desire

Your hand brushes mine

Oh it burns my skin

My eye catches you

Looking away too soon

Half a smile here

A veiled word there

Moving in circles

Yet crossing all lines

Do you ever wish

We could be strangers

Nothing to reckon

And our path undefined
