February 6, 1986 English Comp Journal Entry





Secret secret I'm gonna tell on you
you turned me an ugly shade of blue

locked deep inside sealed SHUT by shame
HE SAID I WAS TO BLAME!

I feed off shame and my secret grows
now everyone knows
I want you not
Go, go from me leave me be

The secret is no longer mine to hide
Now everyone sees it on the outside
My Mama has a gun
you better RUN!

  1. Shame is a funny thing. Anger does a lot to run shame out of town.

  5. Beth, shame and anger are a deadly combo for a 16 year old woman/child.

    Theresa, No the poem is not about a break-up but about events that took place before and after a really ugly break-up

    Little Miss, Yes, I do remember the guy who this is about...We grew up together, I have now known him for 29 years. He has a horrible life. He has been married 3 times, his first child is dead becasue of him, and his only living child no longer speaks to him....Karma is a BITCH!

    Slugdog, it was a very dangerous time...My Mama really did have a gun!
