A Secret

Do you want to hear a secret?

A secret that I have kept.

A secret that my heart told me,

That had made my eyes wept.

This secret that I am about to share

Should not be taken softly.

This secret is emotional,

But maybe that is just to me.

This secret can make a heart soar,

Or it can make a heart sore.

This secret can make one blush,

Maybe even make the blood rush.

Hmm, should I tell this secret?

Will I be judged if I tell?

My heart may break,

If this secret does not go well.

This secret is not only my own.

It is about another,

Who will will remain unknown.

However, he does not even know it yet.

Maybe, just maybe, I should

Let him in on this secret first.

That way no hard feelings,

And less chance my heart will burst.

So I conclude

This secret will remain

Intact within and not shared yet,

To harness any pain.

smart girl, sometimes it is best to keep secrets,
I think...if not revealed we can't get hurt...good job...
