On thorns I lie

I dare not close my eyes
For there may be some surprise
Some hidden fear
Or someone near
But what have I got to hide?
I don’t want to admit to myself
There’s things I’ve put high upon the shelf
Don’t want to throw them away
But don’t want them to stay
Why do I try to hide, what is kept so deep inside?
I dare not close my eyes
For there may be some surprise
That I couldn’t shack away
Just save it for another day
Maybe this is just how it’s meant to be
Everyone has their secretes
Everyone has their regrets
But at best
But as best
They can hide it from the world
But they can’t hide it from themselves
Peeking when no one’s there

I can’t sleep
So afraid to peek
Wishing these thoughts would die
Oh why?

As if it’s on thorns I lie,
tortured by thoughts I’m not willing to deny
