Everybody has a secret
that they are afraid to tell

it may be the one
that sends them straight to hell

Not all secrets
are dangerous and dark

some may be 
embarrassing like a birthmark.

Some others, though,
will never be told

for these are the ones
found deep in the soul.

For those of us
who aren’t that brave

these are the ones
we take to our grave.

    “It’s a saying they have, that a man has a false heart in his mouth for the world to see, another in his breast to show to his special friends and his family, and the real one, the true one, the secret one, which is never known to anyone except to himself alone…” James Clavell,

  4. Secrets… This keeper of secrets is tired of all the secrets. the ones she kept for others and the ones she kept for herself. some secrets fell out of her overly full Pandora’s box, and whose secrets were whose got all muddled up… the monsters and demons are all out of their cages, and I’m standing here waiting for the truth to set everyone free… and for my monsters and demons of secrets to eventually come back to me…
