Silent as a

falling raindrop

Every second

a slow




of secrets.

    ugh….secrets can def. cause erosion in a relationship… better to play with open cards and talk about things

    Oh yes, secrets can really eat up a relationship from the inside.

  4. This in its brevity says so much.. Those secrets are the weed of our gardens.

    slow and sure growth to kill…

    secrets are certainly killers
    and they erode slowly but steadily

    Very intriguing. Well penned.

    I like the feel of this, its darkness. Very creative way to warn against corroding secrets.

    Secrets can erode a relationship, slowly over time ~ Good one Alan ~

  10. It is cool when a poem says so much in so few lines…….intriguing write, Alan.

  11. Intriguing. Open to interpretation. Secrets can indeed be damaging. Much said in a few words.

  12. Gabriella says:

    Secrets are rarely a good thing. I like the idea of erosion you use, a slow but ongoing process.

  13. dsnake1 says:

    i loved the structure of this poem, unassuming, as secrets tend to be.
    great stuff!

  14. This has the feel of Eastern poetry – the haiku/ tanka style phrasing is very effective.

  15. Kim Nelson says:

    Stark and true, you convey the reality that secrets, like lies, destroy.

  16. 1sojournal says:

    Even though we know this, we still keep secrets.
