The Box

Crystal Burke

"Untitled" Sadie Fahrenkrug

Don’t open the box.

Secrets ripple all around.

Something's hidden,

but it doesn't want to be found.


Don’t look in the box.

Fear holds the key.

Please take a step back,

my secrets you might see.


What’s in my box?

Yearning to be set free,

ghosts linger, panic stirs

but Nothing's in there, nothing anyone can see
