Intimacy

Don’t cast your pearls before swine

A lesson we all have to learn

Disclosing our innermost soul

To people who trash it in turn

 

Telling a secret to someone

Who scatters the story abroad

Treating your story like pigswill

Plunging your heart with a sword

 

Jesus in transfiguration

Reveals himself to his friends

Refusing a sign to his foes

Who will get him and strike in the end

 

Only to those who now love us

Can intimate things be revealed

And kept in the heart like a treasure

Locked and safely sealed
