My Storage Unit

When lost and looking, if I say “where am I?”

Don’t think me witty

I will bend to look underneath ten years of storage

But it is best that you do not look with me


For in this place I have found curses and dangerous delights

Made up of truths and flatteries and lies

And even though I often fear the answer

I may ask again, “where am I?”


Mine are the ribbons and drawings and diaries

Scattered and better left behind

And I may stray to look for one thing or another

But I’m always careful to keep my search in mind


I fear often of this decade old storage unit

Not having seen the light in quite some time

That I will look beneath some painfully earned memory

And I will ask “where am I?” and myself I will find
