Whose Secret was it

his or hers

She was his nurse

he was her patient

All she cared for was her job

Opiniated and mouthy

Pontificating and preaching

on a self made altar

Spinning tales

about who got what

Confidante to family secrets

She could tell it all

She was the hunter

he was her prey

Playing the role of peacemaker

while taking him prisoner

hawked his wares

shed crocodile tears

when reminded that according

to her he was just another patient

Silence filled the place

she was a fake

wasn’t even a qualified nurse

She was his Secret she said
