Hidden ~~ a Poem for Friday

"...and the very folds of the curtains
contained secrets and sighs." -Anais Nin
[Picture courtesy of Sanaa Rizvi at the
         "Real Toads" link below.]

Something's hiding here
Hiding behind the curtain
Just a pIle of dust

Something hard to hide
Some sweep it under the rug
Hoping none will see

Or in the closet
Waiting for it to come out
Secret no one tells

Things always come out
Things that can't be hidden, it's
Now or later on

Indeed, Jim. Curtain don't last forever. Eventually, what is will show its face.

I always sweep under the rug :) Truer words never spoken, though.

In its own time, in its own way - truth will out!

The curtain is always ready to rise. Truth won't remain offstage forever.

There's always someone that hopes the truth won't out, but it will eventually.

We all have secrets I think... and maybe that's good.
