Good morning everyone! Today, I’d like to welcome a newcomer to the Poetry Corner, Deanna Liebman.
Secrets by Deanna Liebman
I wanna make a promise, to the lost and forgotten.
That I’ll give you a hand to hold, just please don’t hold it too tight.
Don’t slip away, don’t fall to fast, I’ll help break your fall. I’ll catch you through it all..but I promise I won’t always be
Your secret is yours for me to keep. But only if you wish to share.
We’ll keep it between you and me, nobody has to know, nobody really cares.
But you see, I have no secrets to share. Secrets mean nothing to me if the other person doesn’t care. My past doesn’t define me,
and neither do my dark secrets. You can paint it on the wall, and I won’t recognize that they’re mine. You see..secrets were
meant to be shared, not forgotten or bottled up. Secrets are only scares that we’re ashamed of, wounds that we’re embarrassed
of, memories we wish to forgot..but in reality they’re really painful lessons.
I can tell you my secrets and not be ashamed of who I am. I won’t regret telling you either. Because maybe my secret can help
you..at the very least it helps us to “bond” I don’t care if you keep my secret. For I’m an open book. I do care if you use it
to make fun of me tho. But then it shows how immature you are. I tell my secrets to share and to help myself heal. But to you,
it’s just a dull blade. I don’t tell my secrets to make you feel sorry for me. I tell them because I feel they need to be
healed. And once I’m over it…I can tell you.
But I’ll keep your secret, because you told me to. Because this is what you need healed. This is what bothers you. And I won’t
tell everyone. Your secret is for you to share. I’m not obligated to know. But your secret is safe with me, because I care about
you. I won’t hesitate to tell you mine. The only reason why I would want to know yours is to help cut the chains to what holds
you back, to make you realize your secret isn’t really bad. But rather a lesson.
Awesome poem, Deanna! Thank’s so much for sharing! 🙂
