He asked what came before Happily After,

what had I done for fun,

late night parties or early morning jogs,

was I someone who made the bed

or fell asleep on the couch,

I tried to think back as I memorized

the lines that framed his eyes, and then all

thought was gone, like the years that came

before. I replied he shouldn’t judge. He mumbled an

apology then gently pressed his lips upon my forehead,

as if to read all my secrets, like some

deeply, hidden braille,

then his own breathing slowed

and I knew he understood,

the dangerous enigma before him,

I was a girl of two minds,

two fish, one at peace with the tide,

while the other heads upstream,

and no two days would be

the same. No man could

ever know which direction

I would go.
