best-known secrets

there’s always room for secrecy.

one: there are more stars
up in the night sky
than i care to admit.
like you, it is overwhelming.

two: you know just how
to unravel something with such
care and precision it’s painful.
winding tighter, just to safeguard.

three: lies lead into loss
bleeding regret day after day
fear slowly eclipsing all else.
what ifs, stacked like brick.

and we’ve only just begun.
