The Carpet

Look at me
I’m beautiful
intricately woven together
keeping it all together
creatively
colorfully
I can take your weight
lay it on me
walk all over
feel lush
this plush
is all for you
come play; feel free.

But don’t look there
It’s messy
unfulfilled hopes
some fears
secrets I’ve long guarded
nights I was out in the cold
alone, disregarded
there lies my darkness
your garbage
a full flea market
don’t worry though
it won’t interfere
with what we started
it’s carefully swept under
under the carpet.
