  • I want to try to put my words down, to immortalize my heart's desires, but I can't. I can't be wrong. I can't be foolish and be called out on it. Every time I get closer to revealing my secrets, nothing happens. I say how it feels, doesn't matter, life goes on. But, but my secrets are important to be. Maybe too important. I live within them, by them. If you know them, if they know them, what am I? I'm all figured out. I'm...ordinary. Nothing left to discover? Should I write that first word? Should I disclose that disturbing thought? Or will all the fun end?
