"There is no sight for those who won't let themselves see."


She keeps looking at me
Glancing over
Checking up
She's curious as to what I am doing
As to what I am keeping from her

She doesn't like it
That I keep things from her
She knows I have secrets
She even knows a few
But she doesn't know everything
About me
I know it
She knows it

I don't like her checks
I don't like the looks
I don't want to be checked up on
Leave me alone
I don't have to tell you my secrets
I do not have to tell you my secrets

I'm sorry that I keep things from you
I take that back
I'm sorry that you want so badly to know what I am keeping from you
But I can't tell you
I won't tell you
The secrets
The secrets are mine


The author's comments:
I wrote this sitting in the car next to my mom. I could tell from the corner of my eye by the fidgeting that she was anxious about something. It inspired this piece.
