A Secret Thing
Age Group: Adult
An explosion of the heart,
A blinding sound,
A shattering feeling,
Buried inside of you,
Aching to get out.
And then it does.
It escapes into the world you live in,
Concetrating on those you love most,
Breaking down relationships,
And rebuilding them stronger,
More stable because of their experience,
With such a rebounding pain,
As the one once trapped inside.
It ruins and it reunites,
It terrorizes, and it comforts,
The souls touched by its heat,
Those who feel its wonton vibrations,
The effect of its passage,
Through ties and bonds,
And once concrete walls.
There is the answer,
Within the past tense voice,
The history of the sentence,
The long gone nature of existence,
There lies the truth.
A secret thing,
A scary thing,
A slimy thing,
A degrading thing,
A coarse reminder,
That not all is shown,
Clearly on everyone's face,
A site for the brooding,
And the paranoia,
That follow us all,
To taint our ways,
Mutating them into things,
That better suit its own person,
For it is a living thing.
Our secrets are ours, yes,
But the utopian world,
Should be looked upon,
With wistfull eyes,
An ideal that should be followed,
Even as naive as some see it.
The naive are intelligent,
In their choice of dreams,
Because they see a future,
Where others see darkness,
And they are the source of answers,
When the knowledgeable,
Have nowhere to turn.
Keep your secret thing,
Hold it close to your heart,
That even secret things need to breathe,
And rotting things stain your soul.
Souls are much harder to clean,
Than to tarnish.
