The song seemed a perfect launching-off point for a poetry challenge! Certainly there are many possible variations on such a theme. Please write a poem about a secret love (bearing in mind, of course that this will be a poem, not an autobiography. You can make the whole thing up!) Oh Pooky....your secrets are safe with me!
Maybe your poem will be about midnight assignations and stolen moments between secret lovers. Or, maybe it will be about secretly loving someone who doesn't even know they are adored! However, your poem does not have to be about lovers at all. Maybe your secret love is reading some kind of forbidden literature, or maybe your secret love is something edible, like anchovies! But remember, the important thing is that it be SECRET--except to us readers, of course! As Delaney & Bonnie once sang, only you know and I know...
Don't confuse guilty pleasures with secret loves. If everybody knows you love Bill down in accounting, or that you love anchovies, then it isn't a secret love. So come on, whisper in my ear. What's your secret love? (or that of the speaker in your poem, at least!)
Small print: NEW poem, no haiku or similar Oriental short forms. Beyond that, length and form entirely up to you.
