Hidden Beyond The Pages
Author: Pamela O'Brien


Beneath the ink that tells my life story
Under the letters that spill my secrets
Hidden beyond the pages of me
That is where I really keep it

In the shadows of the sentences I write
Past all of the entries in my journal
Concealed behind the words I babble
There's really just a little girl

Amongst the atrokes of the pen I grip
Amidst the scholarship language
Mingling with all of the bookmarks
There stows a soul once damaged

Beneath the ink that describes my experiences
Under the letters of integrity
There is so much more to be read
Hidden beyond the pages of me.

This is true.....

It is true that we all have a part of ourselves....

Your soul is masked, by your words, but...,


Your words do not hide all, for we see and feel your heart, the feeling is good, just like your heart!

Very direct work, saturated with yourself, in a very private yet, revealing way.
