Secrets

Tell me a secret.

Tell me something no one else knows.

Tell me something no one else understands.

Tell me a secret.

 

Come here. Closer. Closer.

Do you wanna know a secret?

Too bad.

 

Tell me a secret.

Are you hiding something?

Too many secrets.

What's wrong?

Tell me a secret.

 

Tell me a secret. Stop!

Come closer. No! Stop!

What's wrong?

Closer... No! Please, stop! 

Are you OK?

Closer... I don't want to! Leave me alone!

I'm fine.

 

I'm tired of secrets.

Are you sure?

Secrets get you killed.

No.

 

I said come here! NO!

Come here right now! GO AWAY!

Closer! Come closer! STOP! LET GO OF ME!

What's wrong?

Just sit still! NO!

You can tell me.

You can't escape, so stop trying!

Secrets get you killed.

 

Everything's wrong.

Come closer! You can't escape!

Secrets get you killed.

I'm a boy.

What are you-? Stop fighting!

I miss Glenn.

Stop talking! Shut up!

I'm in love with Ian, and he's fictional.

Shut up! Come here and shut up!

I'm depressed.

You can't get rid of me!

I have anxiety.

You need me!

I am not OK.

STOP! YOU CAN'T DO THIS! YOU'LL DIE WITHOUT ME!

 

No, I'll survive. And I'll be free.

Free of the demons that torment me.
