Stupid Secrets

Shhh we must not be heard.
Follow me, i’ll take you
down a misjudgment of stairs,
through noiseless halls. 

Psst, be quiet you’ll let them loose.
Tighten your thoughts,
Stop. Wait-
Maybe the coast is clear.

Don’t get it off your chest,
let it palpitate inside.
I can read your mind on your face
keep it together, I say.

Secrets hold us together,
they keep us on our toes (a shuffle).
Silent! You’ll create a kerfuffle.

Don’t you want to earn a name?
“Yes, but please-“
The success of a lie-gorged quietitude
doesn’t lie with the cliquè thus formed.

It’s the manipulation used.
“I get it but please-“
Please what? Speak up!
“You see, some of us can’t deceive with ease”.
