Wicked and Wakened

Wicked and wakened.
The world was willingly wild.
I tried to ease the agony,
But the control belong to a child.
It was such a horrible thing,
The way the world was on top.
With the opportunity to kill someone,
I guess no one’s to say, “Stop!”
So why are you still here?
Did you forget something?
What was the original play?
I want to keep something.

Out of the Closet

Should I trust you?
Should I tell you?
What would you think?
Would you think I’m crazy?
What should I do?
It’s easy to keep it inside,
But after growing so much in heart,
I fear it’s not fair to keep it hidden.
I feel as though I did it.
And I could never do that to anyone.
Even in my wildest imagination.

Why should I bother?
It’s not like it’s going to bring them back.
They’re gone forever.
Who can do anything about it?
No one can! He’s too clever!
He’s so violent, so destructive.
I went through it too.
I just feel so horrible.
At least I survived!

That’s what closets are for… safe keeping/keeping safe.
