A Secret

Poem By Alison Smith

Within me lies a secret
Who is there to let it loose
Do we want to know this secret
Or should it be forever bound.

Will opening the door reveal
What has been hiding for all time
Or is this just the key
Is there something deeper.

Will we be opening a Pandora’s box
Will it be a detriment to all
Or is it progress we will be unfolding
Something stronger than all time.

Billowing out of my mind are thoughts and feelings
Are they at all important or are they just a dream
Am I trying to make something
From something that is not.

Maybe I should just let it be......

Comments about A Secret

Come to think about it, poetry is such a nice art and you are hot at creating a work of art.
Well put in this poem.............we all have our 'secrets' and some are meant to be kept as such, thus secret and not to be shared whether for our own or another's preservation.....others are meant to be shared with perhaps but one at the right moment.... I wish I had thought of this one.....Superb! marci m. :)
Secrets, unfortunately they are like a Pandora's Box especially if some are let loose and get heard by the wrong people. Something I can relate to. Loved it and thanks for sharing it. David
Nice one i really loved this one i got a poem titled I hate secrets too read it if you got the time Great one peace, love and freedom on earth **KoNi**
The nature of secrets is to secrete, it is unavoidable, and terribly neat just ask the politician of the day who we've decided in public light to flay.

Hear the thunder echoing about
A sky with a green hue
The sign of hail on the way
Lighting giving a great show

They were created with perfection
But arrived before well baked
Sent to show the way

Met a man who interested me

Do you know who I am?

I am the nightmare you cant face
I am the speech you cant complete

I have feelings for you its true
Though we both agree
They will never be love
