Secrets

Secrets,

Some are dirty, some are clean.

Secrets,

You never quite know what they mean.

Secrets,

Hidden away somewhere cold.

Secrets,

Things that never should have been told.

Hiding and waiting and watching and breathing.

Thinking and haunting, concealing and sneaking.

Barely ever thought of till they're gone.

Buried beneath stone, for no one to know.

Wishing someone had spoken their names.

Secrets,

One of life's tricks it plays.
