She pulled me close and whispered
"thank you for not being normal"
I blushed and grinned, mid-hug
as the world warped back into strange wonder
and love again became that thing of beauty,
that secret place where we hid from everything
where every day was blissful,
an eden within an eden.
walking unnoticed through crowds
entwined in heart and hand
only feeling each other
not paying attention to the scattered thoughts
of saddened souls who frowned around
outside this place we chose to face.
15 years we've been here,
while others look and cannot see -
the barrier is all too clear
yet we still peer through smoke and mirror
and kiss when no-one's looking...
