tug of war

I’ve secrets so old I’ve long forgotten
where they may be stashed

how I wanted to let you in
release clues as to my state of mind

I’ve been replaying childhood dreams
reawakening past events

if memory serves me right
there’s a trap door around every corner

sometimes I open it sometimes I don’t
the tug of war continues

october two thousand nineteen

  1. I really like this one, it is simple but evocative!

  2. The trap doors may unleash many memories. This was nicely done
