The secret heart

"The most important things are the hardest to say.

They are the things you get ashamed of,

because words dimish them-

words shrink things that seemed limitless 

when they were in your head to no more

than living size when they are brought out.

But it's more than that, isn't it?

The most important things lie too close

to wherever your secret heart is buried,

like landmarks to a treasure

your enemies would love to steal away.

And you may make revelations that cost you dearly

only to have people look at you in a funny way,

not understanding what you have said at all,

or why you thought it was so important

that you almost cried when you were saying it.

That's the worst, I think.

When the secret stays locked within

not for the want of a teller

but for the want of an understanding ear."


Stephen King
