our shoes telling secrets huddled up by the door,
as walls sitting an awkward distance away scream
"secrets don't make friends!" to anything willing to listen.
but you'd hate me if I told you my secrets.
but not hate in it's truest form.
like I hate the way you stare,
it makes it hard for me to grasp the fact that you'll never feel the same.
like the 21 facial expressions I keep hidden in a box,
for the sol purpose of playing dress up at 2Am on a friday night.
and what does that make you may ask?
that makes 78 bottles left to count off the wall.

Clever update or at least adaptation of that old bar song. I especially like this Line: like the 21 facial expressions I keep hidden in a box,
