Hey guys, this the first poem I have posted. I'd love to hear what you think. It's about not letting people know who you really are.
Safe In No One's Arms
I never walk with bare feet
because with people it's too real
The sand is too between my toes
And I don't like to feel
If beauty lies
in beholder's eyes
Then only they can make me ugly
In the dark the world is small
Safer too, curled in a ball
I wonder if they would love me?
To know would be too open
To ask has so much danger
To search for love could hurt too much
I'll keep everyone a stranger
I wonder, could you love me?
Could you make me lovely too?
Is there someone, someones, out there,
who could love me like you do?
In the darkness I'm not ugly
In the silence I am safe
You said, "Sister turn the light on,
We will love you, just have faith."
No I have a choice
and I make it day by day
I let the hours slip by slowly
Talking with nothing real to say
