these secrets are seeping across the desert floor.
they drench the dry earth with the words i wanted to say out loud
but didn’t.
i just can never quench your thirst.

here is where the keepers stow the secrets.
they keep them locked beneath a million miles of a spider’s web.
they will never tell you my words that so desperately need to be said.
I NEEDED TO TELL YOU.
but instead you left me gasping for air at the surface.
censoring my words.

and as those secrets seep beneath the golden gate
my heart aches for them to reach you.
so you know how i’m hurting.
so you understand.

but instead i stand by those golden gates,
with the secret keepers,
praying that one day i’ll have the courage
to let the secrets flood.

because it’s as dry as my bones here.
my aching bones.
