Locked up from untrained eyes.
Somewhere safe and secret.
Only I have the key
because only I can see the real thoughts.
The others get a different version.
No one is allowed into my secret space
for my thoughts alone.

Files filled with
wishes and dreams.
Bookcases filled with
memories.
All kept away from the judging,
concerned eyes of society.

No one to criticize me,
hurt me, wound me.
Just somewhere to be

Alone with my thoughts.

The author's comments:
My writing used to be one of the things I kept locked inside but I couldn't live that way. It's too important to me. My best friends and the closest people to me still don't see everything and I fear they never will because everything is so far buried for so long.
