Portraits Poetry Series #44: She Kept Sorrows Tucked Away

Portraits Series

 

She kept her sorrows
Tucked away
Tucked away
Where no one else could see
And she tried to fill her days
Longing what she had lost
But living and breathing
Soaking in beauty
Wherever they met
And holding its memory close
She kept her sorrows
Tucked away
Tucked away
And some, they did not see
They assumed her life
Was laid perfectly
But she learned early
If you want to see beauty
You cannot hide from pain
For it is just a journey
You cannot be afraid
To open your eyes
and see.

    So personal. Sometimes with the thoughts we both write about I wonder if we are psychically playing off of each others words. Very touching.
