In January, one of the prompts that I posted for the poem-a-day run was to write a poem that was a secret or a lie. I didn’t know how many people out might actually be writing along. This evening Kyla Rose Robbins gave me permission to post her Secret Poem here on the blog.
Sometimes, at night, I can’t close my eyes
I’m too scared to be alone
Loneliness was your biggest fear, so I never left your sight
I told you things I never told myself
You told me nothing at all
So forget the words I said that night
And I’ll remember nothing
–Kyla Rose Robbins
Every time I read it, I find myself holding my breath, and then I feel my heart start up again. Thank you, Kyla!
