THE SECRETS SHE KEPT by Sally Omar
Clear

Currently unavailable for purchase



Hidden away
In graphic detail
Secrets were kept
Of very long tales
Neighbors confided
Family too
She wrote them down
When she was blue
Reading them helped her
In her misery
She was happier
Than those people you see
Her own secrets
Were locked in her head
They only appeared
When she went to bed
Every day when lonely
And in fear
She’d visit someone
Happy to share
Little secrets
And tidbits too
You better watch out
She may visit you
She felt better
As she slept
Holding her notebook
with THE SECRETS SHE KEPT

    I look at this image and see a very normal looking diary, the poem tells a very different story, which could be a book!!!!!
    i like the way you put this together c xx
