To My Grave

If you want my silence,
Then I’ll sew up my mouth
So no words can come out.
Hand me a needle,
I’ve got some thread.

If you insist I keep quiet,
Then your secrets safe with me
I won’t tell the truth honey.
I’ll take it to my grave,
And six feet under it will stay.

If it’s so important to you,
Then I’ll never speak of it
And that’s a promise I won’t quit.
But just because they stay secret,
Doesn’t mean they don’t exist.

  What's appealing to this piece is the image you bring to fold. For me it was like a beautifully tragic Hedonist with her philosophies in life colliding with those who are too afraid to let themselves go... or perhaps someone who sells sugar in order to survive.

What's tragic about the character is that it appears as though she has accepted the reality of a good f.uck. You can thrust as much as you want but that connection would still be mere skin-to-skin if the other half of the union doesn't necessarily desire anything more than that.

The tone appears hope-drained. Like dreams that dried in her mouth before they could be told to the world. And the ending was something that allowed me to imagine her hinting her desire or how important the secret was to her.

The piece was shaped nicely. The fact that you regulated how much you wanted to reveal gave it some form of strength. It's like we don't have to know exactly what you are talking about but we can understand your pain.

That must have been the kind of connection your character longs for.

  I don't know if this was written about you. But it feels as if the protagonist is willing to do anything for that person that they love. Sometimes though in order to help those we love we must go against their wishes. Its all for the best.

But just because they stay secret,
Doesn’t mean they don’t exist.

This sentence inspired me and it spoke of truth. Just because you ignore a problem doesn't mean that it will cease to exist.

Its always good to speak the truth. Although it is a cliché the truth will set you free.

Pardon my blabbering. It was a good poem. Keep up the good work.

  Well, very educational and enlightening. Yep, everyone knows a secret and not speaking of it doesnt erase it. thing...I think you should use "then" instead of "than".

Good write though Kate. Thanks for sharing.

  pretty well writen piece you have here, i found the flow very smooth and easy going with a lot of emotional and deep feelings for a person. i think that this has a little room for improvement, i don't quite understand myself in the fact that there just seems to be something missing, but thats just me and we all have are own ways of looking at things so don't pay any attension to me. believe me it's hard to write any love or dedication poems and this one is very very good in my opinion... well keep it up.

  Oooo I love it. But yes, I agree with Samm. I wanna know.
It made me think of the song, "Secrets don't make friends" Not the words, just the title.

Although I love the whole thing, I think the end was my favorite.
"But just because they stay secret,
Doesn’t mean they don’t exist."

Aint that the truth? You're very wise.

But hey... psssst... *whispering* So whats the secret?

Ohhh that hyproglo guy is right. "everyone knows a secret and not speaking of it doesnt erase it." Sometimes I wish it did though.
Oh well.

As always,
Very wonderfully done, pal

Your hero

  I love the last part a lot....You have hit the jackpot when you said:

But just because they stay secret,
Doesn’t mean they don’t exist.

This reminds me of the Maury show....When someone had an affair and they thought they could keep it secret but then the lie detector tests proved it to be a lie....This so totally reminded me of that. And your ending is so true...
Just because someone made a promise not to tell that doesn't mean that it didn't happen....Loved it....Still feel like i'm loving it....

To be honest, i liked your title...That was why i wanted to see what you wrote and i didn't really like the beginning because you described a specific scene that probably should had been in the middle stanzas...then i found that you didn't really talk about an event or you didn't narrate it or described it...You just gave a small detail of the afterthoughts. Nothing bad about that but just thought that i could have been in the scene where it all happened...not the afterthoughts...maybe the afterthoughts too but i wanted to know what happened before...And i didn't really get that...

But you still hit it with the nail and i adored the ending....

Anyhow, great job...Hope to see you soon...
Take care....

  Man this piece speaks so true. Not because you keep it hidden and you never ever speak about it doesn't mean it didn't happen. I really did enjoy reading this.

Keep up it
and take care
