Closer still, she kept her secret
Arms enfolded around an unseen heart
Its beat unheard by none
But herself

Loud to her ears, the steady drum
Pounded a rhythm recognising her fall
As she neared the abyss
And the stone-raised hand

Face veiled against accusing eyes
Three had spoken of her betrayal
And here was the fourth
With the crocodile smile

A sainted sister with an even darker
Secret, hypocrite of the faith
Deflecting the rocks
From her own glass house
