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.
