There are so many things
I want to say to you
But it’s never the right time
The right moment
Or appropriate
So I swallow
What the world knows
And I just need
To get off my chest
Because what’s the point
In screaming lights
Everyone can see
So I take my need
To unburden myself
And I hide
In places that whisper
And here
I find my safety
Here I write on the walls
And spin on my heels
Because here
I can repeat myself
And live like no one
Already knows my secrets
Or as if everyone does
And cares
Here I can say a thousand times
I’m in love
And the tiny ghosts
Upon the wall
Gasp like never before
Here I can be understood
Because there’s only me
And my fear
There are no two sides
Trust me
Or not
I’m slowly dying
Nauseated by the merry go round
But it’s better
Than spilling all my secrets
To the sun
And having her
Burn me in the shine
