the truth peeking out of my heart
revealing itself to the light of day? What
voice convinced me
it was a good idea
to confess so much? When
did it begin? Where
are my barriers? How
was I stripped naked?
is the time to move back into the shadows,
to cover myself with fallen leaves.
Alone and lonely, but safe.
