Keeping secrets will prove to be full of misfortune
Being a secret-keeper betrays
Twas silence that betrayed the friendship

Twas silence that strained it

When it comes to keeping horrific secrets
Ones that are meant to be told
Silence is the enemy

The person’s silence betrayed them
Because, of that silence, irreversible damage was done
Silence hid the truth and it cost them dearly

Twas silence that betrayed them
Twas silence that brought the shame
Twas silenced that concealed the truth

Twas silence that costed them dearly

If only that silence were broken, then the great shame would lift
And, the truth would be out
If the truth were out, the person would be free

But, no, cowardice gave rise to silence
If only it hadn’t, but brought a cycle
A cycle of shame and lies is what it brought

Twas silence that betrayed them

Only when the silence is broken, the cycle of shame and lies will end and the truth will set them free
A poem I had written in relation to keeping secrets and I wonder if one can see what sort of book it could be referring to

Ah, this is so true, and very relatable.

I like this line:
"Twas silence that betrayed the friendship"
