April PAD Challenge — Day Twenty-Nine

April 29, 2015

Prompt: write a “nobody knows” poem

These Secrets

Nobody knows
the depths of my soul
how far down it takes
to rid the horrors

Nobody knows
the struggles I keep
or the lengths I will go
to bleed out this pain

Nobody knows
the shame I bear
how these rattling bones
lead only to despair

These secrets I hold
are for me alone
if anyone knew
death would come too soon
