Better Than the Rest… #Poetry #Fiction

Best, better than the rest, 
     that was the beautiful lie you told
after all we have been through
running, hiding from the law, 
because of the time we were born into, 
    a love we cannot speak
every glance a giveaway, a prison sentence
remembering not to touch hands in public
evening under dark skies, 
     we dare to hold hands, laced with fear
long years later, we can speak, say I do
love wins out, the world can see us
after all these years 
     we can smile at one another in daylight…
