I used to think that I did such a good job
At holding up my mask, hiding my feelings inside
While telling everyone that I was just fine
But then one day you showed me
How you could see right through me
With you, my feelings aren’t so hidden
Like I’ve always tried to make them be
You broke down the door and took the key
And unlocked what held all my uncertainties
At first I wasn’t so sure,
After you stole the key and broke down that door
But then you showed me comfort,
Like none I’ve ever known before
You reassured me with your warmth
Showed me that with you, a lock was now unneeded
That for once I could finally
Take off my mask and show you whats behind,
This hidden door

this piece was inspired by a relationship that completly changed my life. i learned so many things from it. This poem is about finding someone who loves you for who you really are. Someone you feel safe enough to let inside and get to know you, the real you like you never done before.
