He Said Her Name

She loved how he used her name

either as an exclamation

or a little secret

He would announce her presence

as if her name where a symphony

and follow with the most childlike smile she’d ever seen

Sometimes,

if they happened to be alone

he would saunter up beside her

and in just barely audible tones whisper her name

as if she didn’t know it

as if it were a secret between them

she would look at him and he would stare straight ahead

as if she should have not heard

maybe she shouldn’t have

maybe it was a secret

maybe it was a secret he wanted to keep

in barely audible tones

upon his lips, alone
