Telling others

Custom User Avatar
More by this author
You share memories
You share secrets
But sometimes they can be used
Behind your back

You talk to much
You laugh to much
For others liking
Around you

Maybe they're jealous
Of your friendship
Or so it seems
In the early days

You share your life story
They share theirs
You confide in them
But that will be abused

Never get in a fight
With anyone who knows so much
About you
And your story

I'd say never confide
In anyone
I'd say never share secrets
With anyone

But still
There are ones you can trust
Ones who will be there
For you

Tell some
Don't tell many though
Unless it can be told
Without you caring

Some things people
Can't hold back
They feel people must know
Your life story

They think you won't care
Even though you asked
For them to keep it
A secret

If it can't be told
A million times over
If it can't be told
To a million people

Be careful who you tell
Or your life
Might be like mine
Living in the shadows

Hoping people won't tell
Won't ask, won't wonder
Won't want to know
Won't want to tell

You can't trust many
But those who you can
Tell, but be warned
There may come a time

When they can tell
Without
Thinking
About you

Pretty good job. :) I think you have some VERY good ideas, but that your point would get across a lot better if said ideas were expressed in a little less wordy of a manner. If you check out my early work, you will see that I had the same problem for a LOOOOONG time, lol. But overall, nicely done.
