Can You Keep A Secret?
Long-kept secrets, whispered in youth;
Mine not yours. You held my life in the palm of your hand
And the power to persuade, to control, to drown this girl
Was yours. You had everything.
Murky secrets, containment imposed
Subterfuge enforced, I played along not knowing one rule
A role play, an act, of a fantasy extinct
You said, I did, you lied, I suffered.
