Sleeping Secrets

The Secret Tree, Ashley Newton

Sleeping secrets;
They dwell in my subconscious.
Harbouring consequences,
Hidden behind declarations.

They dwell in my subconscious,
Wishing to be free.
Hidden behind declarations,
I keep them locked up.

Wishing to be free,
They have truths to expose.
I keep them locked up,
Behind bars of shame.

They have truths to expose,
Tempting me with liberation.
Behind bars of shame,
I fear to confess.

Tempting me with liberation
Harbouring consequences.
I fear to confess
Sleeping secrets.
