Secrets like snakes

Secrets are like serpents which creep in on you.

Secrets of truths

Secrets of fears

Secrets of pasts

Secrets of the present

Secrets of the future

Secrets of others

Secrets about others

These secrets keep piercing my conscience, creeping into my mind when it’s silent, slowly eating on my thoughts.

It’s a buildup of layers of stories and truths that I am afraid to share with anyone even with the one I love.

 It’s like a buildup of skin I am afraid to shed.

 It keeps creeping up on me but I am afraid to let it out because of my fears.

 I am afraid of:

 Being myself

 Being misunderstood

 Sharing my truth

 Sharing my past

 Sharing thoughts and opinions

 Hurting the people, I love

 I would rather carry my secrets to the grave because that way I know the secrets lie only within me and dies with me.

In death, my secrets are safe, covered in depths of sand, mud and earth, never to see the light of day.

My secrets are only safe with me and under the cold earth.

    This is such an honest & beautifully written piece. One thing I learnt many years ago is that there’s no such thing as secrets. They eventually come out or need to come out to live without fear. Where there is light darkness cannot reside.
    I’m here if you ever need a safe place to release xx
