the same girl is never the same (10)

she doesn't need to explain to you
just why she loves the man she does:
for that is between her and him.
it's made up of all that is, and was

and will be. she is self-contained.
not gossip and not piracy
will wrest from her, her due reward:
to love, and love

in privacy
