What is kept behind

 

What is kept behind

You were always skilled

at keeping secrets,

telling lies.

It was your gift,

your masterpiece,

your magnum opus,

expelling unspeakable things

to the island of your mind.

But rip tides of the past

lurk around you

like bad dreams,

waiting to drag you

under truthful waves

while your fingers

claw and scratch

for

those

sacred

fallacies.
