A Secret Keeps a Secret

Am I the only one to notice
That when you keep a secret
The rest of your world is sucked
Into hiding that secret
Until one secret
Becomes a thousand?

Am I the only one to notice
That when you tell a lie
That lies grows, like a rosebush
Full of thorns and drunk
On the blood of your lips
And grows from one little lie
To a thousand little lies
Until nothing's left but one big lie?

Am I the only one to notice
That while you stand there,
Accusations burning in your eyes,
You glare at me with truths you know
But lies you have never sought to fix?

Am I the only one to notice
How when you speak to me
You cannot push aside your hate
Long enough to ask a simple question?
Just ask me, "Why?"

Am I the only one to notice
That while you hide behind
A mask of "growing up"
And "I'm stronger now"
You still hide inside a broken heart?

Am I the only one to notice
That the words you do not speak
I am ready to scream
For you and all to hear?

Or...

Am I the only one to notice
That you
Infamous, secretive, beautiful
You
Can maybe hear me if I say the correct words?
That you, above anyone else
May be able to save me from myself?

Am I the only one to notice
You?
Are you the only one to notice
Me...?
