Secrets are all around me,
Tearing me apart.
Secrets are whispers,
Ripping at my heart.

Secrets told in abundance
Only to trustworthy friends.
Secrets so quiet,
When told, time ends.

Secrets kept from me,
Not a word to me.
Secrets they think I don't hear;
They think I don't see.

Secrets don't last;
They never keep.
Secrets told to one bad ear,
Through them they will leak.

Secrets leaked,
And everyone knows.
Secrets spoken,
Now friends are foes.

Secrets told
Make hearts sore.
Secrets told
Aren't secrets anymore.
