It’s me
And yet
It’s not
I am
No more
This
I am
Sure
Secrets
Build up
Swell
In
My eyes
The words
That were once
So easy to
Say
But now
It is
No longer
Okay
So now that
My sleeves
Are stained
Dark red
And my soul
Is a vicious
Rapid animal
Tearing at the surface
So the words can spill
So my secrets
Are no longer
Held together
No longer
Just my burden
I wish so much
To let them go
But if I do
They will just flow
I can’t tell you
Can’t let you
Hold them in your empty palms
I must cage my secrets
I must chain them up
Lock them
Up
Hide the key
Until someone
Who will understand
Will find it for me
My secrets
Are burning me from
The inside
They swell at my eyes
Can you see them?
Can you hear my silence?
Take my secrets
From my burning
Soul
Or I will take them
With me
When I am
No longer whole…

This was inspired by a book I'm reading called Once You Read This I'll Be Dead. And a song "Secrets" by One Republic. Secrets are awful so when u have the time, get rid of them.
