(Philosophy/Poem) Dirty Little Secrets


Dirty Little Secrets

 

Just because we were both young

I kept all of your nasty little secrets

Because both our kids were innocent

I pray their minds are clear of deceptions

 

Secrets, O how much they can harm

Dirty little secrets destroy all they touch

How many deaths have your dark daggers caused

Dirty little secrets, O how you mar the soul and heart

 

Secrets, prognosticate the lies that now come

Why always the need to bury a shameful truth

To skirt all real issues with your high skirts

In the mirror, what is that looking back at you

Can you even see the damage, dirty little secrets

 

We keep some secrets, sometimes we don’t

Sometimes to protect the heart of a friend

It’s okay to lie, just pretend we didn’t know

Dirty little secrets sometimes we keep for life

 

I wish that perfect that I myself could be

A disgrace is all I see the secrets inside of me

Lord I come to you bowed head on bent knees

Please cleanse me of all, my dirty little secrets
