But Nobody Knows...

PAD Challenge day 29: For today’s prompt, write a what nobody knows poem. It’s easy to write a poem about what everybody already knows, though it may be difficult to write an interesting poem about such things. Still, use today’s prompt to explore things people may not know–secret stories, locations, and so on.

Nobody knows
though, I suppose they suppose
what perhaps ebbs and flows
in thought's half-closed cell
because our finger-tips 
can drop hints and lips
are a door through which slips
what word-shadows will tell

...but nobody knows
as past casts highs and lows
in love-loss-longing throes
to those walled worlds within
which what-when-where-why
may soft-silver our sigh
with the ruins that lie
beneath our skin
