Prose Poetry- Kept in a box of secrets

Updated on May 25, 2013

I cannot tell the truth- I cannot hold a lie

I can't feel the cold whisper on my spine

Save me.

Save me from myself.

And all that I believe is hell.


I can’t feel the cold whisper on my spine.

I cannot tell the truth,

I cannot hold a lie.


Seeping into heaven,

I feel as if it is hell.

I am warm from within,

I am worn from all who cares.

Kept in a box of secrets



Kept in a box of secrets,

I kept you in a box.

I forgot about the key,

But I still recall the lock.


Hope isn’t answered,

Tingles on my spine,

You pray that I am different,

That I am one of a kind.


I scream out into tonight.

I scream out for you.

I am torn between the anger,

and the laughter that left too soon.


Show me more than life.

Show me more than this.

Show me how to silence the fear,

and finally begin to live.


Hollow heaps and screams,

Heaven found its peace on earth.

Can you feel me release my breath,

and shatter as you take your turn?


Don’t you feel the silence,

Cover us up in black?

Can’t you take my hand,

And make up for all it is I lack?


There is a heaven here on earth,

The tingles up my spine.

Take a deep breath in.

Breathe me in as turpentine.


Spin in circles created by you,

I used your poison,

Now I can finally feel the truth.

The World is Still Beautiful if You Slow Down to Notice

To You from Amazon

      Canscorpion,

      Thank you...once again for following my writing and leaving your feedback. I have been working on providing hubs that give a full benefit and full display of emotion and imagery to the reader. I guess you could say I am attempting to give the reader the full experience within a hub to provoke emotions and thought. So your comment is especially appreciated-letting me know that I have succeeded, at least with one reader and one hub :)

      There is much beauty here. There is much pain here. Yes to the quest of finding balance between mind, body, and spirit. I send you beacons of golden Light. I like to write about emotional recovery and miracles. Peace....Gary.

      molometer - thanks for the great comment and for being the first to leave some feedback. Alaska is cold and it is beautiful...My idea of heaven on earth-other than that, I do not know much other than the way of life seams to be much slower and less stressed as it is in the Continental United States. Thanks for the votes up :) I appreciate, very much so!
