The most important things are the hardest to say.
Words shrink things that spanned the horizon
in your mind to less than puny when they're brought out.
But it's more than that, isn't it?
The most important things lie dangerously close to where your secret heart is buried,
like landmarks to a treasure the world would love to steal away.
And you may make revelations that cost you dearly
only to have people look at you funny, not understanding what you've said at all,
or why you thought it so important that you almost cried while saying it.
That's the worst. When the secret stays locked inside not for want of a teller
but for want of an understanding ear.
Thank you, my friends, for always understanding.
