Pandora's Box

It’s so hidden

I wish I could peak

You told me to

Never open it It was a piece of your mind,

You said.

Never share your words,

You said.

The box which

Holds all of your

Memories and dreams

I stare and wonder

Why must it be locked?

How horrible could it be?

Can’t you tell me?

You say we’re alike,

The only ones to write

But why won’t you share?

I envy your box It contains more

Emotion than

You reflect I could hear

Your conscience speak

Through the fine

Cracks of porcelain.

Your stories are overflowing

Close to bursting open I reach out,

But once more

Your hands

Keep it shut.
