Locked Trunks

Silently mimicking life, living beyond it's borders
in my mind.
Languishing amongst memories kept in locked trunks,
to prevent tears from constantly flowing throughout
the years.
Filled with uncontrollable anguish when first opened,
yet the bitter sweetness of my tears experienced is
well worth it.
