No one can

No one can
Know what happens
Between us. Not
Because we don't
Tell them, but

Because they
Are not us.
Even we do
Not know. So,
I treasure this

This thing between
Us, like a secret
Pain, Inside me.
A pain both
Beautiful and un

Bearable, the
Duration of
Which is all in
All ways always
Certain and un

Certain. And thus
Is always a
Glimmer of a thing
Burning in the night.

Far from knowing
Far from knowledge
Far, far away
From me or you.

L. Steve Schmersal, No one can, May 2014.
