enter the enigma

5 lat Enigmy

I keep secrets
Secrets like smells and stains
In crouch of favored jeans
Secrets like... how many niggers
You really have been with
Secrets like... old attic closet bones
And same sex dreams
Secrets like girlhood crushes
And masturbation
Secrets like...
How many pregnancies
How many births
How many children
Do You really have, love, care for?
Secrets like... murder's thoughts
Secrets like CIA assassinations
And... who's really running Microsoft?
Secrets like the origin of Mad Cow Disease
And AIDS in Africa
I have secrets of my own
That could shame me
Blame me
Leave me ostracized
Secrets I wouldn't even share with
One Million TV viewers
My secrets keep me up at night
Make me secretly smile
Leave him wondering
And are constant reminders
Of my humanness
I know secrets
That would drop mouths
Ruin friendships
Distance lovers
I keep secrets
I know You want to
But don't ask...
It's a secret.
