Always hiding
something. Implied,
though never obvious.
A skeleton.
Your soft skin. Temptation
more than seduction.
Never denied.
Reckless behavior,
shameless thoughts. Still,
you never divulged
a complete history.
Never asked.
I could taste the alcohol
on your breath,
always could, but
wanted more.
It was easier
to say goodbye,
than it was to expose
the naked truth.
We are all infallible,
if we try.
You stopped trying.
