When I finished talking
You said, “You’re a goddam liar.”
My face burned, and my fists clenched.
You were right, but that is not
what made me love you.
You astonished me back to life,
and shocked me into love
with the force of your truth,
and held a mirror up to shock me
yet again, with truth of my own.
In its apprehension, yours is
so like the mind of Athena,
yet your soul’s expression is so like
the beauty and passion of Aphrodite
that all your intellect cannot mask it.
And again, I am shocked by you,
because you are a liar too
and do not shrink from revealing
your weakness and your strength—
the paradox of your divinity – to me.
When you finished speaking I said,
“You’re a goddam liar!” and shocked myself.
My eyes opened. My heart pounded.
My tears flowed. I love you for the
truth I see at the heart of your lie.
