Secrets

Secrets 
They are put in an unduly bad light, I think 
There's something almost...
Romantic 
The idea that some things 
Are just too shocking 
Or too dark 
Or too beautiful 
To share with the world 
And I know that through the scribbled ink 
Slips the things I don't have the guts to say 
And sometimes 
Without realizing it 
I in myself become a secret 
To multifaceted to show the world 
With too much depth and backstory 
Sometimes to hurtful 
Or to unacceptable 
But in its darkest hour, the secrets are only 
The things we can't bare to share 
For fear we would lose all that is precious 
And life would be meaningless 
And some people say 
Everyone has secrets 
And they do 
I know I do 
But half of them are so strange 
Peculiar 
Queer 
Odd 
Out of the ordinary 
That we don't even share them with ourselves 
Like the thorns of blood-red roses 
They may make the beautiful terrifying 
And when the secrets are too much, even for their bearers 
They bring shuddering sobs 
Muffled by the bedsheets 
Drowned out by the thunder 
We are so sure is sent by the gods 
For the secrets we should have spilled sooner 
There are the ones 
That no-one knows 
And year by year 
The become exposed 
Like the flesh of ripe fruit 
Ready to burst out in a magnificent display 
They are the things 
We don't have the courage to say
