Keeping love zipped

You zippered your mouth closed
For a secret you dared not tell
A well-wished fantasy flawed,
Your eyes telegraphing the message
I could not read,
A look so boasting I wanted to belt you
For the envy I felt,
You thinking yourself so cool,
More like an overworked air conditioner
Who exudes a frigid air
But always over heated at the effort,
Your life the life of a thermostat,
Always watching what you say or don’t,
Unaware of how your eyes betrayed you,
Winking, blinking, a stop light
Full of reds and greens
But leaving me to determine
Which you really mean.
