Hiding Place
May 8th, 2002

Come out wherever you are
I know where you've been hiding
You're in the dark corner of my mind
Waiting to jump out at me

You whisper things to remind me
Of the person i was
The person i really am
And the person i could be

All i want to hear is your lips moving
They quiver at the slightest sound
You're scared because i know
How to be someone else

You say things to protect me
Of the person you were
The person you really are
And the person you could be

...i close my eyes in order to see...

I think this is one of your better poems because it has a strong theme.

The second line of the last stanza struck me as awkward.

This poem is more than words on a page. It is a childrens nursery rhyme. It skips across the page like an infant.
