Dark unopened rooms

Dark unopened rooms

places where no-one dares to go.


Written in letters unsent

trapped in minds; never uttered.


Brushed under carpets

whispered; sometimes through decades.


Life shattering, unsayable things

heartbreaking and unacknowledged.


Painfully suspended in time; never shared

burnt embers of a life half lived.


The healing wings of truth

forever clipped by shame.


Secrets that should have been spoken

lay in graves forever silent.

January prompt-a-day with write alm today’s prompt is – family secret(s)
