Midnight Honesty

​Last night a friend spoke to me

My secrets

Struggled with the chains of shame

But awkwardly  I explained

He said honesty 

Allowed our  friendship to exist

I couldn’t argue 

So my  story was told

I was shaking as I spoke

He repeated others words

But they were different 

No pointless  platitudes

Not false words 

You’re going to be okay

He eloquently  stated

What’s  the point?

He summed up my fears

With ease

Then dismissed them


He threw my own words back at me

Don’t  be afraid to show the world who you are

It’s  not as scary as you think it is
