These Rooms

These Rooms

These rooms hold a secret you don’t see.
These walls and chairs. Ordinary things
evidence of life and experience.

Pictures with smiling faces screaming
with a pain not seen or felt by anyone
but me.

In these silent rooms I am free
free to think and feel the pieces of me
unbound by criticism or judgment

Hanging in the corner is the me you see
The me I put on when I leave these rooms
