Secret Place

I try to let you in 
But I still defend 
my deepest heart 
How do I start 
to lay bear my sins
and still be safe 
in my secret place
Weathered and worn
And bent by wind
Laped by wave
Erosion staved 
from my dwelling cave
My secret place
I hide my face
Metaphorically erased
Invisible to none
But never seen
Either I come out now
Or be replaced
But how can I leave
My secret place
Compelled by your Love
That has brought me here
To a place where there is
Naught to fear but fear
So now I emerge
Free from dark 
And confined space
For you I leave
My secret space 
Bear to the world
My Blood dose race
Because the comfort I've Chased
I feel in your arms
My new secret place.
