In darkness my secrets weep
A quiet but ongoing pain
Of ones who just want to see the light
Yet in confinement they will remain

Huddling together for comfort
They struggle to find a space
Overflowing every now and again
To show in a haunted face

Looking fully into my eyes
You can see they linger there
Instead of a sparkle of living life
There’s a dullness that lays pain bare

In the past I’ve tried to release them
Opened up, offering them to some
But reactions and disappointments
Left me weeping and feeling so numb

So now I am their sole jailer
My work to keep them sealed away
For then I know I can keep them safe
I can guard them come what may
