To my confidant

There is something I need to tell you.

Something as life would have it,

I have never told anyone.

You frown but I also see a smile in you,

Maybe a gratitude for the fact that

I am confiding in you.





I wonder if there is a mirror word for the word empathy,

something with a “yhtapme” quality to it,

The feeling of you feeling my feelings;

Becoming me for a while.





And  I know,

It doesn’t matter what I tell you,

If it’s something I have never told anyone,

That I never will;

It’s the telling that means everything,

Not the tale..
