The Secret (Thursday Poet’s Rally wk 16)

He was handsome – rakishly so
A magnetism he knew worked in his favor
he sealed the fate of many a doll

No one knew his secret
They never would
He would take his “magic” over women to the grave

One night she got a glimpse
Something she wasn’t meant to see
His secret wasn’t as safe as it was supposed to be

She had a secret too
Might be his undoing
She could release the tongue of any man
Her beauty and charm skilled in wooing

She carried a file of secrets in her heart
She loved each story and the man it footnoted
Each given freely to her

Put these two together
an explosive combination
Could be diabolical
or a romantic duet

What would be her fate-
He wondered?
What would be his story-
She pondered?

Also Wanted to thank dear, sweet Jingle for the Awards from Week 15!!!!

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. In 2019, we have an exciting project. We are developing elementary curriculum for Ugandan children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children who want to learn. Along with the curriculum, we hope to develop simple fictions about Uganda for the children to read at school. Trust me books are in short supply. We will use our trusted story tellers: a butterfly and a lion to make the stories come alive. Stay tuned as Bethany and Me put pen to paper. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2012 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the (quiet) originator of the idea and co-producer of One Stop Poetry. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.
