My StoryMature

Fourth volume of poetry.

I kept myself a secret
locked inside a book
no-one would ever read
worn by every hurricane
drowned by all the rain
dried by all the sunshine
still not sure these words are mine
I stepped out of the pages
removed all of the lines
but I've never lost my book
or the memories kept inside
this book is aged
a story told
time and time again
but it still hasn't changed
until I found a pencil
and crossed out all the words
this is my story
I am the author
I have no guidelines
and I don't really know
where this story ends
but I know it doesn't end here
this is where it begins
I'll burn the old pages
and protect the ones I like
these are my words
this is my story
this is where I begin

The End
