Covert

Megha's World

I have a secret message

a covert skill 

I am 

conversant with,

I have written you a million times 

scribbled you secretly 

nipped and tucked

you in my verses

hiding from the prying eyes

folded neatly between the pages

of my poetry 

tucked 

secretly under the 

poetic verses

you can find my eternal love

dripping in those context clues

draped in the veil 

of words and lyrics

 Hidden behind those 

similes and metaphors

lays my love for you

You can pronounce me the

Matahari

only if you knew,

So if you really seeking me

as I have longed you forever,

come read my poetry

and peek inside those syllables

to find a reflection of you

I’m trying to hide forever.
