“What Lies Beyond?” – Makati, 09 June 2016

what lies
behind the
doors
of your
mind:
what secrets
do you
keep,
what wickedness
sleeps within
you,
what passions
will stay
banked;
what cravings
will stay
unslaked
unspoken
unsatisfied?

do you
keep them
locked,
have you
thrown away
the key;
do you
fling them
open
to a
few?

your doors
stay shut
and only
fly open
if someone
speaks the
words
you dare
not utter
yourself.
