The Secret (5/12/2010)

She sits alone in a room,
Too frightened to make contact with the outside world.
Covered up, her eyes hidden from view -
A secret she must keep to herself.
Nobody understands,
It seems that nobody cares -
The whole world intent on bringing her down.
Looking in without a clear view,
No wonder they don't see what she sees.
They're all so desperate to look into her eyes,
So desperate to discover her secret.
She's in fear, her every move -
What will happen next?
She remains covered,
A mark of her isolation.
The need for self protection so great,
Only a select few will ever see her eyes -
The holy grail of trust no longer exists.


  1. I have the feeling this poem has a lot to do with your fears, it's very brave of you to put them out there :).

  2. Hi Lost-In-Space. You remain anonymous and your profile reveals nothing. These powerful words are very moving and I agree with unikorna, above. Very brave.

  3. Thank you both for your kind words.

    Indeed this is a poem about my fears, written at a time when they were pretty intense. Thankfully these days I no longer feel this way as much, which probably does make it easier to post the poems (and paintings) from this time.

    I also hope to put out the message to anyone going through similar stuff to what I experienced for a long time that it is possible for things to turn out better. And I hope by being honest about the darker times and experiences, as well as the more positive stuff happening in the present, that I can achieve this goal.

  4. Thank you for sharing some of your past feelings and emotions. I appreciate your honesty and how you let others know that despite the hard times things can get better.


  5. Thank you for your kind words, Madison.

    If only one person gets the message that recovery is possible then I will be happy.
