BETWEEN THE LINES

I believe she knew him 
She met him once between white sheets
Of paper where he left his innocence
Despite his inexperience
She was caught up in the rhythm 
(Rise and fall)
Of iambic or trochaic foot.
His simple honesty
She understood.

I don't believe he knew her,
Though he met her once, between white sheets.
Where she gave him her innocence
Despite her inexperience
She was caught up in the rhythm
(Rise and fall)
In simple honesty,
Misunderstood.

It was his found experience
He, too busy with the rhythm rose and fell
And gave up being innocent,
Or simple,
Or even honest.

Better she soil those sheets once white 
With love, then he, with that neat cursive,
Coolly cover them,
With antiseptic
And metered verse
