Amethyst Shards


Amethyst Shards

©2013 Diana Rasmussen

She carries her secrets
around in a box
hides them in darkness
keeps them locked

shoves the box
under her bed
some things are never
meant to be said

She lost the key
to her heart long ago
trys to stay sane
and be in control

burys her memories
stuffs all her pain
hoping they’ll never
come up again

in the depths of her heart
are Amethyst shards
falling down like
houses of cards

fragments of herself
lost in darkness
rattling around like
skeletons in
the closet
