She’s entombed in a battered prison, aching to finally confess
Secrets kept in the burning walls that suffocate her lungs;
Yet, the air is growing quite pungent with her bitterness 
As she stifles the words, for they’re too afraid to roll off her tongue…

    Some secrets are best buried, if it does not benefit you to tell it and hurts another, sometimes best to not tell it. Awesome write and win! Hugs

    A friend of my once remarked that these feelings of anger eventually turn to guilt as we turn them upon ourselves. A very bad situation to be in. I just love your work--it is incredibly inciteful. You have a heart of gold.

    Secrets can be dangerous things, they hold us captive within the constraints of our own minds. Well expressed.
