IT TOOK BERLIN

When did I first suspect

that you held a secret from me

my gut always told me

I was right

 

My mind would

so often ponder

over what my heart

told me was true

 

But there in Berlin

I knew I had been right

when my own flesh told me

“you knew didn’t you”

 

From the mouths of innocents

comes forth the Truth

was I shocked

yes – no

 

All made sense

at last

hurt, deceived

mainly cheated

years lost

 

Then I recall

others and their warnings

I would laugh nervously

not knowing to what they referred

 

All these years later

I know they were warning me off

If I’d known

would I have heeded their words

would I
