Oh Dear!

As I search for the key, looking up I see
A gaping hole looking at me
The villains have been to my front door
I step inside where I find
Such violation in my home
Chaos swirls in my mind
I am unable to function
So much to contemplate, cannot think straight
The police arrive and what do I hear
Three break-ins on this block
You should have installed a better lock!

Tucked Away

I locked the door
Built up walls around it
keeping what’s inside
Safe and secure
For no one to find
Not even myself

For many years
My connection to it
Had been lost
No longer a memory

Somehow I found the key
Very slowly I unlocked the door
Keeping my distance at first
Then with just a peek
A began to weep

With the genie out of the bottle
I went full throttle
To reacquaint

How could it be
For so long I couldn’t see
The simplicity
Of the way free
The key
Is just being me
