Not saying what you could say…
well, it shouldn’t matter anyway,
but then what’s unsaid becomes an inadvertent secret.
Those who believe they should have known,
even though the truth was yours to show,
proclaim your silence a wrongly kept secret.
Who are they to decide
what is personal and what is lies
when what’s behind their back is a closely guarded secret?
