Your arms lift me up,
  as your words take me down

And I’m caught in-between
  your smile and frown

Your eyes making promises,
  your words yet to keep

My spirit in limbo,
  my heart left to weep

A soul now in turmoil,
  my mind double dealt

As your fear and your passion
  collide

What’s to be known,
  and what’s to be felt

Is it your words or your actions
  —that lie

(Villanova Pennsylvania: June, 2016)
