A HEART IN DARKNESS

 

I kept it hidden from the world

Like a family secret

Like a buried treasure

Which I guess it was

Deep within

The prison

Of myself

Laid out

Like Sleeping Beauty

A heart in darkness

An irregular beat

That sometimes felt love

But could not receive

Any

Behind the emotional walls

Buried deep down

Within the dungeon

Of my mind

Behind crystal glass

As if on display

Enchanted slumber

Of an evil nature

Where no royal

Charming

Personage

Would ever find it

So expertly protected

That even bandits

And thieves of hearts

Could not pick

My locks

There it lay

A heart in darkness

An eternity

Of forbidden tears

A lifetime

Of hidden suffering

Of rules

Do not hope

Do not trust

Do not believe

Do not try

Do not love

Protect

A heart in darkness

Let no light

Not a single ray

Give a sliver of hope

Or illuminate

The truth

The only one

Keeping

A heart in darkness

Was me

And then one day

The warden

Of this one man’s prison

Realized the errors

Of his ways

Gave up his position

Granted a reprieve

Unchained and unshackled

A heart in darkness

Saw light

Was illuminated

And given wings

To soar to the highest Tower

And to trumpet

A call

To an army of one

Tear down these walls!

A heart in darkness

Was no longer

Concealed
