i looked at the box
covered in thick dust,
still wrapped and
waiting to be opened
with a name tag and
bow on top untouched
by human hands. who
was it from? what was
it? what should i do?
keep it as a mystery or
open the box and see
what surprises lay inside

he keeps his secrets in the dark
under floorboards, loose, warped
in damp, dank cellars crawling with life
musty, stale attics, riddled with the past
behind the cupboard in the corner
stood in the same place for years?
his secrets are safe here
waiting, patiently, for him to die
so they can reveal themselves,
emerge from the darkness
and his friends and family
will finally see
who he really is…
