Your name comes from a Greek word
best translated as Messenger.
It is an uncommon name for a female
& you are a woman,
deserving of poetry.

I know your secret
as well you know mine.
I thought of you today at 2:55
in the morning.
I was consumed by you, 

consumed by a wish
to touch you.
As poet I may write feelings
or truth void of emotion 
& of love.

Outside my window,
I hear night birds singing,
in love with twilight,
intimate with darkness.

I realize that they are messengers
of their own making.
