What a big secret for me.
I can keep it.
I am everybody's trustworthy friend.
Sometimes I feel I am the dumping ground-
a place for secrets people just can't keep.
I hear all the gossip.
I never tell anyone.
I'm the quiet girl in the corner, but I know all about you.
I know you like you are my best friend.
I know about your 13-year-old bipolar sister.
I know about your alcoholic dad
and stressed-out abusive mom.
I could ruin your life.
I know you're gay,
I know you do drugs
I could ruin your life,
but I don't.
I am everbody's trustworthy friend.
