What happens when my rock crumbles?
My wall falls? My support fails?
What happens when I’ve got your secret
but I’m too scared to tell?
What happens when I need advice
to help a friend get out?
But what happens when the one I turn to
is the one I’m talking about?
What happens when my one true sister,
the girl I’ve always known,
has let me down, and now I’m scared
we’re both gonna be alone?
What happens when I see it clear
but her eyes are blurred with pride?
I know that she wanted help
but held it all inside.
What happens when I bottle up,
and take the guilt and blame?
What happens if I let her down;
she called but I never came?
What happens when I need a hug,
but just can’t breathe word?
What happens when these half-assed poems
are a cry out to be heard?
What happens when my rock crumbles?
My wall falls, my support fails?
What happens when I’ve got your secret
but I’m too scared to tell?
