I turned around and there you were
a million thoughts went through my head in that nano second,
a wave of emotions swept through my body at that instant,
time froze, everyone faded away,
it was just you and me in the room.
i came back to reality when I heard my name
only you called me that name
i saw the confused look on your face
i was with him, you were with her
and all I wanted to do was run into your arms.
You take a step forward then you saw the fear in my eyes, you stopped
i glanced away
Just then, another wave of emotion went through my body
like ice water being poured over me
i was cold, I felt cold, I went cold.
I looked back up, you were still staring at me
she was staring at you confused, he was staring at you angry, his hand gripping my arms tight
it hurts… where his hand gripped me, it hurt badly.
it was almost a whisper, but I heard you
even though you were so far away.
Our eyes met, I smiled, you smiled, you know, I know, we knew…
the jacaranda tree held our secret,
no one has to know, no one needs to know, no one is going to know.
That secret binds us together, no matter who, what, where or when.
I’m going to have a lot of questions to answer to when I get home
but the jacaranda secret will go with me to my grave.
