I told a friend something was bothering me today. 

He asked me what it was. 
Consternation grew around my thoughts, 
so there was no reply.  
He continued on to say, if I make it through the day then it cannot be so bad. 
I said to him, “thank you for listening to my truth, one I cut into halves.”
My friend, I am sorry if I have wasted your time. 
But, I cannot tell you all my secrets, for there will be nothing left of me inside.
