May 4: secrets

Somebody has told me something that I feel I must not reveal to anybody. How long this will last I cannot say. We are social animals. We are not made to keep secrets. All secrets end up being revealed. To share intimacy with people we reveal others’ secrets. Failing that, there are other forms of betrayal we can perpetrate. All this, to win intimacy with others. I shall attempt to keep this secret but probably it will burn a hole in my pocket and I will end up spilling it.
