Daily Prompt:Elicit

I said the one thing I knew would draw out the truth from you

and I don’t regret it.

Because you opened up to me for the first time, and I got to know everything about you, nothing was left hidden.

The truth was out and it was a sunny day outside, you could feel the weight of it all just drop from your shoulders  when you were done talking.

There were many tears that fell from your eyes that day and, many secrets that spilled from your lips.

One’s I will keep safe with me until the day I take my last breath on this earth, but for now I just want to draw out all the things that make you feel alone and helpless on your darkness days.
