I Live

I Live ~ Photo by Patrice

You don’t know how I live
You don’t know 
what makes me tick 
all is hidden deep
beneath the facade
I keep.

Private, personal that’s where
I live 
hoping fervently 
you don’t peek beneath 
my closed lid. 

Which slams shut 
whenever
I think someone’s too close 
to see my flaws
secrets I keep, hide  
I live.
