Hiding

I must say, it’s dark in this corner,
Not a sound
Only my voice echoing
Bouncing around

This is my usual place
Where I hide
The place my feelings are
Deep inside

I will not come out
Only to be accused
Leaving my feelings 
Battered and bruised.

She says she’s been fooled
I’m not a jester
Breaking hearts is not 
Where I’ve schooled.

Genuine love I put on display
A severed heart
Continuous rain of misery
Is what I have to pay

Hands clasped around my legs
My head rests on knees
Love knocks on the door
My voice echoes go away please

This dark corner is cosy 
Alone and mine
This is where I’m safe 
And feel fine
It’s familiar to me
I’ve been here many a time.
