Burden Basket

I found my burden basket again
just recently
half buried beneath long dead grasses
salty, smelling of the sea
Its wicker work torn and dirty
its twin lids bent and broken
I looked into its heart
and could see all the words of hate
I have spoken
Words and thoughts
of negativity
and pain
that I threw in there
never to be seen
again…
Until now, when my need
has grown so strong in my mind
I re-weave the wicker stronger
to hold the demons inside
and give a place
to the thoughts I dare not utter
the dark ones, the dread ones
from under my breath
they mutter…
At last it is strong
it holds firm and tight
it will keep in the dark
and I will stay
in the light…
