Your words are like a chain

by Harry

Submitted by Katherine McKnight
Your words are like a chain
Of truth, ungelded, linked.
Just one secret shines like gold
In the pulsing hollow of my throat.

The necklace hardly shimmers,
For faith is dull and beaten.
Betrayal only can impart
Precious pardon to the heart.
