futility

……

i have tried
to keep your secret
name small and still
on my tongue for such
a time and much
too long, but it
wants to spill out into
the world,

……………a song.

    I’m picturing you being pregnant but trying not to tell anyone until you know everything’s okay … and come to find out, you’re having twins!

  2. I have a secret. But it won’t come out as a song – well, maybe some very angry music. I hate this secret I have. And this is how I feel – I was imagining letting it out today… believe me it’s not one that should be kept. I’m mad that it hasn’t come out already by those closer to the situation. Futility is a great title for it, too.

      Awwww. Thinking of, and praying for, you, Anne Katherine.

      • Thanks, but it’s a dear friend of mine who needs the prayers, not me! Adultery is the secret, and of course both parties of the couple which includes my friend knows – it’s the other couple (well, she knows, she’s the other participant) – but her husband and the greater community of people don’t know yet, and anyway, it’s not my place to yell it out to everybody and it would just be gossip to lots of people, but some days I sure to want to because I want the errant parties to pay for their selfishness. But instead they continue on… with no real consequences… yet!

      That is unbelievably frustrating.
