Can I whisper you a secret
Do you promise not to tell?
Does it matter if it’s painful
Would the truth do just as well?
I’ve a face that hides my spirit
There’s another lurking there
And sometimes I see her winking
In the space beneath the stairs
I’ve a voice that sings a sorrow
Like a lark pierced by a spear
I’ve a monster underneath my bed
I don’t even think to fear
I’ve a memory I’ve forgotten
I’ve a story yet untold
I don’t care for its conclusion
Or the way it might unfold
Will you keep for me my secret
Since I’ve chosen now to share?
When you’ve almost just forgotten
I’ll remind you that it’s there.

mindlovemisery’s prompt this week was for us to share anything, so I thought I’d write a strange little quasi nursery rhyme about sharing strangely 🙂 🙂 …. See her prompts and her great writing at http://mindlovemisery.wordpress.com
