Light of the Russian Doll

Dark is my space

No Sunlight, No twilight,

No moonlight, No starlight.

Hidden away, forgotten.

Silence falls around me

Only my memories

Talk in my head

Nestled in this void

No understanding of time

I once was beautiful

Painted elaborately

The smallest one

At the very heart

In the middle of the layers

Now movement

Gently at first then

Shaking, banging

Suddenly brightness

Searing, exciting

Releasing me from this space

Freedom and identity

My time to shine

As I am brought

Into the light

Key to my heart

Today NapoWrimo’s prompt was a Landy, I must admit this was really hard, so I’ve had a go:-

heaven

I once told the world the secret to open my heart

It meant that you would have to be smart

.

I wrote a poem riddled with clues for you to find

Unravelled with an unconscious mind

.

But the key is still hidden covered in cobwebs now

The box is locked, this is my vow

.

That one day the key to my heart box will be solved

Finally true love will be resolved.

Hidden in a Cloak

Face is set with a smiling beam

Bounce in my feet as I enter the room

Joy in my voice as I converse with others

this is the me that others can see

 

The invisible cloak is worn today

I pull it tight, no gaps appear

It is my comfort blanket

I feel safe and warm

 

Why and what are you hiding

Hurt, for I cant say where the pain is

Sadness, for I cant show my tears

Disappointed, but I cant explain why

 

So hidden in the cloak

Are the bits that I cant share with the world

just for a while, I keep it tight around me

Self preservation, until I am stronger
