All My Secrets

He says that I remind him of
Some old country song, I think
He doesn't really need to know
"How many arms have held you
And hated to let you go"

I'm dizzy, up there on his pedestal
My character is flawed
Wings tattered, flesh a bit scarred
Stars twirl around the bumps on my head
I think he sees the dark of me, but instead
He says he thinks he's found
An "Angel flying to close to the ground"

Some days I ooze with personality, or
Become his worst reality, a little bit rebel
Alot flower child, mostly free spirit
Sometimes gone wild

Each new day begins again
Some things he'll never see
I'll be keeping all my secrets
Just between you and me

    We all have a beautiful tendency to hold our secrets for ransom Karen. Being totally open means being totally vulnerable. Great self analysis. J.A.B.

    An angel to close to the ground. Man have I heard that on before. Sorry I have be a professional musician for 20 years. Gave it up for computers. But I know the speak and the lies. You are too good for that. Keep writing. It will take you were you want to go and you will meet the people who need you and love you. Kilmer
