A poem about the feelings we harbor, out of the fear of sharing them with another.

Its weird how difficult it seems.

Where to start.

Who to tell.

I am a cage.

They claw away at me.

They want to be free.

I feed them.

They beg to be released.

I bury them.

I'm afraid they may harm others.

I'm afraid others will fear me.

They have caused me pain.

Only I should feel their claws.

So, I keep them.

And I feed them.
