When I think about my friends
I wonder where they are
And if they're predetermined
by some sort of magic scar
That's deep inside the world
Of my life
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Often, as I try to fall asleep
I think of all the secrets that I will keep
For if I do not wonder,
I will fall into the slumber
Of a million souls.

I can't exactly say what I liked so much about that poem, but it was very charming. (The cat)

Everyone has at least one
Most have more than few
Some are trivial, held for fun
Others are deep and true.

My secret is in my heart's place
hidden away from sight
the name of her, who with her grace
shone my world with light

A secret is a secret when no one knows of it's existence,
Then the secret sets loose...
And the secret is then no more
But a mere memory

A hundred thousand specules of molten steel,
Burn my flesh, that's how it feels.
Sparks from my grinder cover my skin,
My eyes sting,
Everything,
IS RIGHT!
The glow of the metal,
The heat that I sense,
Relasing new layers,
Than no one has seen.
Shaping, shifting ,creating
My very own firworks,
Flash before my eyes,
To keep it a secret,
I only behold.
