The Book of Secrets

Updated on March 05, 2013
Source

Some things remain hidden

Only you may know

Under lock and key

For protection

Safety

Revealed only for show

Stored away

Deep

In the mind

Where

Nobody could see

Buried beneath

The pain

Beneath

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

Hidden

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.

      Hi Ushnav Mc explained it perfectly. Some things are so painful you want to forget them somehow or lose them. Thanks for stopping by. :)
