Storage

We stored ourselves
In the cabinet above the kitchen sink.
To hide away from visitors
Or strangers searching for those
Missing parts of us.
But we were smarter than them
Keeping those fragile parts of us
In glass and water.
Always gentle though,
You can’t knock too hard,
Move too fast
Or things will start to shatter
Leak from the jars above.
You can’t let those parts
Be aware they are hidden
Or they’ll start to make a sound
As secrets, kept in silence
Often do.
Just smile the days away
And if you need to,
Leave the only the nights to question
If separating yourself from yourself
Was ever the right choice in the first place.
