I'd rather be sorry for something that I did than for something I didn't do.
-Red Scott


Will you keep my secret inside?
Or whisper to the passing tide?
And reveal it to all who maybe care
Perhaps, better, in truth, not to dare
To risk, and them with this burden trust
It is not more noble than to rust,
Expose the labyrinths of your soul

But you still may say, this is not so,
Your soul is no iron can
Then how, do tell, to span
This chasm of questions, doubts,
If every other person shouts
In order not to hear
The secrets which you share

I speak, and you listen, enthralled
None to find out the reason you called
Out in your dreams, rebirthed with desire
To tell them the words and feed the fire
In the secrets of their hearts
Which might exist
Will you keep my secret inside?

Will you keep my secret inside? Did you find out this unconcealed secret inside the poem?

You're welcome. Sometimes it takes weeks, sometimes work gets posted the same day of the submission. Let me know when its posted. :)

Okay, thanks; I'm glad that what I had in mind makes sense- not very good pointer for me if I were the only the one who could see it.

In order to become a VIP, you have to contribute a given amount of work, and be a member for a given amount of time. I'm not sure exactly... I mean I didn't contribute that much. The sign will just pop up one day.

Also, where's your Cinderella story? I looked for it and could not find it. Still pending aproval?
