In pockets of mud
I stored my secrets and my lies.
I hid my cunning excuses
to recycle them
another day.

I buried my early dreams that
shriveled up and
decomposed
under a painful dose of reality.

The tears streaming unrestrained,
I dug into the cold
rugged earth,
to be forgotten above
the surface.

All those warm tokens,
I banished
from the open spaces of my mind.

But as soon as the rain seeped through,
they resurfaced.

The extended metaphor you used is great. I really loved this. I read it twice, just to make sure I got it. Very well written. Don't stop writing! <3
