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

I Have Done What I Need To Do

I have done what I need to do
No one else can make
This journey for me
Neither he, she or you.

My heart aches
That you don’t know
This to be true.

But then what do I know
About your journey
That journey, like my journey
You’re travelling too.

You Don’t Know

You don’t know and I won’t tell
The secrets kept
That do dwell deep beneath the sky
In plain sight
But blind to the naked, uncaring eye.

See you when your heart opens up
Your eyes do speak
And your mouth remains shut
Then you’ll know
The secrets I speak about
Then we’ll laugh and dance about.

You Don’t Know, I Don’t Care

You don’t know
I don’t care
Everything else
We must share

No one told me
This is the living I’ll do
Expressing kindness
Harmony and gratitude

You won’t come
Take my place
All the goodness done
Can be easily erased

So bless yourself
Pick your teeth
The world will turn

You Don’t Know

You Don't Know ~ Photo by Patrice


Of course you don’t know 
The sadness, the heartache 
I shouldn’t know. 

You see the life 
That seems to glow. 

Sometimes it’s a lie 
Sometimes you see I cry 
Then if course 

You don’t know.
