Don’t Look At Me – Collaborative Post

I just posted my poem over at Forgotten Meadows.  Neha periodically runs a call to poets with a photo prompt.  Here goes: In the Sunshine of Summer Time.

Don’t look at me

I’m sorry but I can’t show you that piece of me

I like to keep it hidden

Far away from the roving eyes that would devour me


Don’t look at me

I keep everything I need on the other side

So you can’t see it

I show you what I want you to see

And I keep the rest tucked over here


I keep it for me

Selfish you say?

Preservation I think

I give you the pieces I think you’ll keep safe

And the rest is mine to protect


Maybe someday…….

My healing journey on the continuum of "It's all wrong" to "It's all right!" I love art and the creative process, reading, writing, and playing tennis.
