Secret

Chains wrapped around my heart

A lock binding them together

The key long buried deep inside me

Nearly forgotten in its hiding place

 

Only I know where to find it

If I want to let the secret show

Unlock the lock

Remove the chains

Only for a split second

And only for a select few to know

 

Nothing

No one

Not a flower

Nor any amount of coaxing

Not even chocolate

Can open that lock

Against my will
