He set me free

I hid your name
in the extra spoon of sugar,
i added to my coffee;
in the smell of wet grass
i walked over in winters,
in the yellow flowers
you loved to give,
in the lines of the book
you suggested to read.
I hid your name
and never said it aloud
till he whispered in my ear
you can let the secret out.
I never knew I would heal
once i talked of the hurt
what i thought as invincible
he banished it from my heart.

    I like the way this poem goes about its work–very effective–and some lovely lines and images throughout.

  2. love, love, love “I hid your name
    in the extra spoon of sugar,
    i added to my coffee;” – it has such an original feel and grabbed me at once! one hell of an opening line! great write here

    I love this idea of hiding the essence of someone dear in blades of grass and spoons of sugar…anything to make those feelings tangible, this is lovely.
