The Book of Secrets


Some things remain hidden

Only you may know

Under lock and key

For protection


Revealed only for show

Stored away


In the mind


Nobody could see

Buried beneath

The pain


The fury

Things that could hurt

If they come to rise

Secrets so lost

Could paralyze

You from within

So they will be kept there


Among the ruins

For only your eyes

Could see

A book so tragic

To be lost at sea

Wouldn't it be nice if we could drown some of those secrets in the sea? Let them rest, well, you know the rest.

Hi Caroline,

"Secrets so lost

Could paralyze

You from within"

We can become a prisoner to our secrets.

Amazing imagery and writing.
