Skeletons in the Closet

In Poetry, Stories, secrets & dreams on July 26, 2012 at 7:57 pm
In the closet of one’s body lies many skeletons. Some are of minor scale, others are of major. Some are shared to some degree, others are hidden to never be.
The skull holds the brain, which protects the mind that wrestles with itself everyday in time.
We tell ourselves we will sleep it off, but instead we sleep it in. Like a crockpot, everything gets slowly
simmered until its end, or it begins again.
The arms – we wonder whom have they held, if only they could tell. Holding and letting go of so many
they don’t know. Oh, what a story they could share, if they could say “sit down and take a chair”.
The legs, if they could talk, could tell us places where they have gone both willingly and not. Their lack
of control to what they do is connected to the brain, arms, and you.
