Poem about a literal box that holds much more than the items that reside within it.

In this box resides the me,

the me that no one gets to see.

In this box I've placed myself,

the self I've shared with no one else.

In this box I hade away,

all the feelings that would stray.

In this box the memories stay,

so they can't haunt me everyday.

In this box I contain,

the pieces that I wish to maintain.

By leaving bits in this box,

I can never be completely lost.
