What you see is what I allow,
no more no less,
only the wall.

A mask I wear to shade my soul
my pick, this pen,
your only view.

Its in my world that I feel safe,
emotions run high,
all thrown about.

Only in time will I let you enter
my path, my world,
in all its blunder.

To intrude by force
you can't,
I'm locked.

In that world, no heart to see
with secret hiding of the key
one shall appear to set you free
unlock your heart so tenderly

Shelly, your poem has such intensity and written well.

Not a good place to be, I know Shelly, but someday, someone with the right key will open all the doors and set you free

Thanks Hoot!  

I wrote this a few years back.  It's amazing (to me anyway) that you can come so far and still be the same.
