Are you hiding?
Is there something blocking you
A gesture, or a flaw
That stands as a tall gate
Hiding who you are
And keeping you.
Whats keeping you?
Is it the way you laugh,
How you smile
How you sing or dance
Or the love you find in these things
That you are ashamed to love.
Whats keeping you?
Is it a mistake you made
Maybe in childhood
During the first grade?
Or the way you made
Your sibling feel
How you complained
On how much they eat
In just one meal
And the look in their eyes
As you realize
You're the first to make them
Question themselves
Soon they're hiding themselves
Is it the gulit you feel for them
Or the stuborn ignorance you feel
For you ?
Whats keeping you?
Is it the grades
That should be no lower than they were last year
But in fear
They drop and drop
Until you can no longer hear
The simple sound of
"Good job!" On a test
But you did your best
Or the question thats getting you to second guess
Is this really your best?
Whats keeping you?
Is it a friend who you thought
Would be there until the end
And guilt for being the one
To make it end
And how you can never figure out
If to call them stranger or friend
For you knew them
You do not know them
There presence makes you sink
And you cant possibly think
What you'd do without them
Even though
They're fine without you
Whats keeping you?
Is it the feeling
Of leaving
The release of giving up
Letting go
But knowing what hurt it would cause
To those around you
You think it wont
Cause you don't know
They really care
Whats keeping you?
Is it knowing you never
Say i love you enough
And hating that you're still to shy to say it more
Whats keeping you?
Whats escaping your heart
Only to be crushed by your fears
This self secret of yours
Sinking and sinking within yourself
Because you cant deal with yourself
Ask yourself
What power
does this secret
really have?
Why are you letting it keep you?

"What else am I supposed to give you?! You took away everything!" shouted Life.
"Maybe you shouldn't of flirted with me then." smirked Death.


"Why are your eyes closed?"
"Because  I see better that way."


she shivered 
and waited desperately. 
when she looked up, 
the swirl above 
the snow so heavenly 
then came a rabbit 
jumping, pausing 
like in a questionable glance,
