STEALTHY

when you ring that bell
the cat comes out of the bag
so not stealthy

your secret is out
the secret you’ve been keeping
out of fear and more

i don’t mean from me

must be guilt or shame
just blaming yourself again
beating yourself up

and the light of day
shines on all your flaws and faults
all foible-laden

narrative flimsy

crammed and chock-full of
encumbered and hampered yeh
stuffed so not stealthy

and creepy and cheap
more selling yourself so short
you unring that bell.

  1. Actually I have been beating myself up lately. Maybe I need to give that some thought. Thanks.
