Secret's Prisoner

Poetry By: SkinDeep

The feeling of hiding an overwhelming secret.

I'm sick of having to hide the past.

I need to break through fear's iron gate

For this load I carry grows heavier

It's not long until I collapse under the weight.

I am a prisoner to this secret.

It binds me with poison soaked ropes

Burning my dignity with every smile I fake,

Tightening when I have even the slightest of hopes.

I've tried to kill this memory

With the fire of alcohol and the of power the blade,

But it only grows stronger

Feeding on my fears and the dreams that it invades.

It is time to call for back up

I need a soldier to save me from this unbearable pain

So I yell out from this dungeon

I am ready for help in removing these chains.
