I gave it to him. Presented in most elaborate beautiful wrapping. I gave him my box. The box locked up and tied tightly , the box vowed to only give to him. It was special to me. It held all my hopes and dreams. The desired for my life, how i wanted to be a wife and, gift beautiful black children and share our lives. I gave him the childhood memories that grew into therapy Sessions. gave him the smiles, the ‘i love yous’ the worries, the tears, the ‘are you alright’, gave my silent fears. i gave him me,my darkest secrets, and the thoughts i have as i await slumber-every night. It was all inside this box. Wrapped, sealed and guarded. gave it to him.
And he said nothing.
