Nightmare: The Secret Keeper

The Secret

I know, I know; I've asked too much of you already
Up until today I've asked for what I don't deserve

I hope, I hope; you will always be able to put up with me
Because everyone else chooses to ignore my words

So please, please; I want you to take me, and hide me far away
I need you to do this for me; I never, ever want to be found again

Take my will, take my heart, take my tears, take my name
Take my life, take my soul, take my fear, take my pain

Pull me into you, and keep me close to your void of a heart, so I can lose myself
Hold me in your arms, and keep everything in your palms, I yearn to be held

I can no longer stay
So please take me, and hide me before it's too late


-

The Keeper

I never wanted you to know that I don't care about myself anymore
You need to know up until this day I still feel so, so hollow

It's okay, it's okay, feel my peace, I'm giving it to you, so don't worry
Because you need it more than I do, take it all, I don't need serenity

I'm crying these tears for you, because you couldn't, because you wouldn't
You didn't, even though you wanted to; you just said that you shouldn't

I have a lot of secrets to keep, some are others, but most are mine
My heart is a vault with a thousand locks, so please have no doubt in mind

Come here, I'm going to let you in
You'll be safe from now on, your calm will begin

I promise that I won't let you go, ever
Everything is going to be okay, because the pain is now over
I will keep every deep, dark secret
I will damage myself to hold onto a promise

Take my hope
And make it your own

Stay within my heavy heart
So you will always be safe where you are

In volume nine: Harsh hallucinations
Nightmare: The Secret Keeper -
Nightmare: The Compulsive Liar- Nightmare: The Compulsive Liar Nightmare: The Compulsive Liar

Step by step
You attempt to walk away from yourself
Breath after breath
You try your best to not call out for help

I am so far from you, I am are better off this way

One tear after another
You were never good at hiding your feelings
All of those cuts seem to go deeper and deeper
You were always the one who took in all of our suffering

I don't know you anymore, I no longer recognize that face

Day by day
You endure this storm of scars
Night after night
You silently cry alone in the dark

I don't know what you're talking about, I'm fine, I'm okay

One dream after another
You see all of the things you

Thank you. I also did it in a silver version, but found it kind of dull. I like silver though :P

So much going on in that lovely mind of yours! You really know how to draw your reader into the verse..waiting and seeing words that turn into a moment and then tucked into my heart!!

My close friend asked me a question, and without think I blurted out the first thing that came to my mind.

Friend: How does it happen when someone makes it into your "circle of friends?"
Me: When they tell me secrets. That means they trust me, and then I return that trust.

The conversation goes on for a bit, but that is the gist of the important part. I never knew that was my moral on close friendships. I guess I really do hold a lot secrets. Which...unknowingly inspired this poem.

I'm so glad you liked this. :) Relieved.

I think is a wonderful and emotional journey to put you back in charge of your life again..heartbreak and emotional abuse or pain leaves so many scars..among other things..I just know that you REALLY have a gift and it will touch so many people who may need a friend who understands what they are going through...Just no more thoughts of suicide ok? Put the pain on paper and bury it in the backyard or burn it..it worked for me...Hugs Honey!!! Brenda

The first part reminds me of Church while the first,third, and fourth stanza in "the keeper" reminds me of words I wish to say my bf...

I'm wondering if you can go more in-depth "why" that one part reminds you of church? I'm just curious now.

And yes, I wish I could say that to a certain someone too. :'(

But I'm so glad you enjoyed this. Thank you. :D
