sorrow heavy
blind stupid me
one second too late
universe waits
peeking over my shoulder
to laughing punish me
as if I didnít know
it was a sin against her

silence stark
comforting like any
backstabbing friend
I smiling like any
bitter enemy
embrace her
sincerely

secrets not kept are not secrets
stories not told are not stories
without secrets or stories
silence is nothing like me
