Secrets surround me with pain
Unbelievable, indescribable pain
If only I could let go
If only I could tell.
But telling's not an option.
Once a nark, always a nark.
Soon you're drowning in your secrets.
Falling to a depth where no one can save you.
Unable to breathe
Unable to swim
Unable to beg someone to listen
Secrets can enclose you in their grasp until slowly you have fallen to a point of no salvation.

The author's comments:
I wrote this poem because I realized that I have so many secrets I would like to tell people, but I am completely terrified to do so. I have horrible, terrifying secrets that I am not sure people would take very well and I don't want to be a burden. I wanted to express what I felt like not being able to tell them and say that it felt like I was drowning from them because they never let me go. I hope that people like this poem because I take my poetry very seriously and I want people to relate to it, so maybe they can feel a little better about themselves.
