If They Only Knew

If they only knew there are women alone in their homes that dance to music

So full of love that it has nowhere to go

So it pours out onto their cheeks, the floor and is released into the universe

They cry because they are left alone and unseen

Unseen because the masculine has walls that are so thick

Even the tears of loving women couldn’t wash away the mortar

The walls that were built to protect against warring tribes that no long war

The walls steadfast around the heart as beauty, love and connection remains outside

Waiting for the bridge to lower

The women continue to dance

The music is overcome by the deafening silence

The tears continue to fall

If they only knew
