You Were Never Really Here

The Mortal Sickness of a Mind















We are busy during the day.
We can have the moments to ourselves at night.

Dreaming; praying; having the feelings of nostalgia;
even thinking about how to keep a secret better.
Maybe.

We all have secrets.
Can you keep a secret?
