Keeping secrets

16 Nov


We all think we can keep a secret

I know I have never revealed anything told to me, or sent to me, or given to me. I have never passed on gossip, idle chat, or cruel rumour. And I have never uttered the name of a lover. or a past lover, or longed for lover, to anyone.

We all know we can keep secret

But when the secret is a betrayal of the one who knows us best, then the secret itself refuses to be kept.

It whispers itself in every word, every half truth, in every lie, in every nuance, in every falsehood we speak. It sends hints in every look, in every gesture, in every glance, in every lowered pair of eyes. It mutters in every evasion, every digression, every fabrication, every prevarication.

It half shows itself when we hungrily check our phone for expected messages. Though we try so hard to remain unnoticed.

It never gives itself away completely.

But it says enough.

Never believe you can keep a secret.

Not from one who loves you.

    Secrets have a way of screaming out for attention.

    Wonderful, honest, yes! The ones who love us truly are the ones paying close enough attention to notice the traces, the whispers, of these secrets…a bittersweet truth. Thank you for sharing this part of yourself.

    A deep connection creates a psychic, open telephone line…no, secrets cannot remain so when loved.

    Secrets can save a world of pain. We all have them, no one’s secret is better or worse than another’s. I also have many that have never, nor will ever be spoken; it is for the best. Great page of your notebook! As always, I enjoyed.
