But I was used to finding something deadly in things that attracted me; there was always something deadly lurking in anything I wanted, anything I loved. And if it wasn't there ... I put it there myself. ~ John Knowles

My secret
I thought I could trust her
I thought I could share with her in confidence my revealing secret
But she told
And now everyone knows
HE knows
They ALL know

When in the hall, they tease me
They point at me and stare
They break me down until . . .
Until tears flow like water falls
And my soul bleeds red
My defensive walls, seemingly so sound
Fall with little effort

I thought i could trust her
I thought she was my friend
But . . . i guess not
Because she let it slip

The author's comments:
I just wrote this, it's not very good. This was at first a "poem" i wrote when i was mad at my mom because she found my safe place. This website. I come here to write my thoughts and to just vent. She told my whole family about it, and they all now can read my revealing poems. But, then it was about so much more. It brought back countless memories of my seemingly "friend" telling secrets about me behind my back. It's not anything special, it's just how i felt.

“I learned this, at least, by my experiment; that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.” ~Henry David Thoreau

Agreed! I'd be angry if my mom went and did that to me. But this poem is pretty good. Don't sell yourself short. It's not perfect, but tell me one that is. We're always growing, sharing, shining, and polishing our work. Just use this to make your next one better.
