Poet's Notes

This was a hard subject to write about(perhaps I don't have any secrets)

 Nothing came to me at first, even though I looked up entries about Secrets in the Dictionary and the Thesaurus. It seems there are many reasons for keeping secrets.

There are the selfish reasons:
1. Betrayal of others. Concealing acts for which there would be 'hell to pay'

and secrets that give power over others, secret formulas,Secret societies, .

Believe it or not there are some good reasons too, for keeping secrets;

These can be- to shield others from news they wouldn't handle well or to keep a nice surprise for them.

Keeping secrets is probably one of the hardest things in the world to do and with this in mind - my poem came to me in the shower.

My Secret

My secret is the pivot
that I spin upon
All the conflict of
my days and nights
extracted from

In veering from
my inner truth,
the web I've spun

Concocted looks
of innocence
with practice come

Of all the silent music
in the world... unknown 
Inside my heart and mind
is locked the song

My secret
My secret
My secret

    I'm glad I didn't overlook this one. It is teasingly cryptic and a wonderful read. Why am I not surprised that this is a winner!!! ... Jake

    Great poem to read tonight :) I'm new to the whole poetry thing but I've posted a few of my own that I would appreciate comments or suggestions on I would be happy to return the favor. Once again awesome writing you have here, a secret creates anxiousness for people to guess and reflect upon.
