The Box Poem

The Box



As I prepare my body for burial

I put you all away

Hope, love, lust

I lay my body in a tomb

I do miss you

You cannot be found-hidden

Although I keep you in a box-tightly bound

You are with me-but inaccessible

I keep you in the box

Hope love and lust-forgiveness too

You have let me down so I imprison you

I hide you under my heart wrapped in anger

You are there-I hate you

Still I keep you with me

In hopes I use you again

Seal my body and heart away

Don’t forget the box

      @wrenfrost56 Thank you for your comments I appreciate you taking the time to read and comment. I meant it to express a struggle that I think most people have been through in their lives at one time or another. I did write it during a personal struggle I was going through but thankfully made it out!

      Beautiful piece, I sort of felt a bit sad after reading it though, not in a bad way just in a thoughtful way. Rated up, thank-you for sharing something so personal.

      When I first stopped in hear I wasn't really expecting that. But what a great and beautifully written poem full of meaning!

      Dark...sad....and beautifully written. Open to several interpretations and that's what I like about it most.

      We should all break free and be proud of who we are and enjoy being who we are. Great poem.
