Folly

The folly of secret keeping
bursting forth
from sealed lips

Sworn secrets
rush
into open air

So true. A secret is nearly impossible to keep.

Like your use of "folly."

Often when someone asks can you keep a secret i feel they want it to be shared..either that or natural instinct

secrets are hard to keep, depends on the type of secret I guess.

I like the ferocity in this. Sometimes releasing a secret feels like letting lose a maelstrom

Susan Anderson said...

Oh, this really fits. Well done.

Sure is true. With gusto indeed!

Keith's ramblings said...

Secrets are meant to be broken - that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!

Secrets imply guilt and sharing them shares culpability.
