My Secrets, Not Yours, to be Told

You betrayed my trust
I should have been more perceptive
For it was already broken once

I was warned: don't trust that girl
I should have known
you couldn't be told

Why can't I keep quiet
All the things of passion in my heart
More discerning
Not bursting forth as a fountain

I look you in the eye
Deception reflecting from yours, in min
Iced over
Numb & cold
Can't believe what you did
Not only once, but twice

It wasn't your secret to be told
You didn't care enough
And it easily slipped right out
Those were my secrets,
Not yours, to be told

Not everyone is as cruel as you
Leaking out secrets
That were better to be kept
From you altogether
So many things I've learned the hard way

Others know you as a gossip mill
While telling another's secret
But never your own
Oh no
You keep those locked up
Because you trust no one else
For you see no better in another
As you know of yourself

Can I forgive you?
But forget?
I truly don't know
Because those were my secrets,
Not yours,
To be told
