Secret Combination

Hidden fears manifest as obvious tears
anger rises, then subsides
Fortune hunters wear disguise concealing lies
And in the beginning stood you and I
yet behind the combination lock
stands a ‘no outlet’ sign
visitors unwelcome behind closed blinds

And in my mind stability nests
after trial by fire in a courtyard jest
what is & was never meant to be
taught by the experience of pain
never knowing life could be so cruel
to strip me of my rightful gain
wallowing in my shame, hopeful to begin again
