Secret Hiding Places

"Look within! The secret is inside you."  - Hui-neng

I never thought you'd tell my secrets and destroy me. 

I never told a soul what you whispered to get that first kiss.

I never told a soul that you wanted us to run away together.

I never told a soul that you promised me safety and protection.

 

I tried my best to protect you when I was punished for the thing you did. I was trying to save your reputation. I was humiliated three times that week. 

The promise you were to keep was the first to be broken...

you promised I would be safe with you. You never faced the furry of my enraged parent... being called degrading names and having objects thrown at. I couldn't control my fear when I was alone with you again. I lost my mind. I said things and did things I had no control over. I was absolutely terrified about what would happen when we'd get caught for running or for being pregnant before the age of nineteen. You watched me lose control. I saw your face. I wish I could take it all back. I spiral over and over each day of that week. We went for the best day of my life to the worse. I fought that battle alone and you let me fall.
