Come closer but not that close

I write on pages every single day. 
Maybe I write so I don´t have to talk. 
Still, I feel the need to scream from a cliff my deepest desires 
and maybe also the name of my last hook-up. 
Hi, can I call you soon? 
I want to tell you gossip about myself.
Who even wants to listen to me? 
I trick my brain into believing that the book is a person that listens to me write. 
They get to know everything that is unspoken and so the need to share is fulfilled.
I think about how the human being evolved to see red when they were looking for fruit among green leaves and when they looked at the red blush in the faces of their fellows. 
Red is survival and connection. 
I want to tell everyone my secrets, so I post them on Instagram. 
But so does everybody else. 
What if there is no such thing as a secret anymore?
The layers of paint on the walls are pages. 
Soon I will paint over all of this and close the book.
