Things I Never Tell
Author: Pamela O'Brien


I never tell a friend
If I don't like their hair, outfits, or other friends

I never tell a lover
If I am uncomfortable being naked around them

I never tell myself
That it's going to be okay if I know it really isn't

I never tell anyone else
Anything that isn't really any of their business

I never tell my mother
How much I actually admire her

I never tell my reflection
That it must achieve perfection

I never tell how much it means to me
To share the things I never tell through my poetry
