Feel Freely - Poem by Michael Kelsall

When it's dark,
I open up my heart,
and feel so crystal clear.

But by light of day,
My heart locks shut,
From stress and strife and fear.

Because in the light
The masks are on,
An life's pantomime begins.

A twisted circus,
Draped with a tent,
To cover up our sins.

For in the dark,
Where eyes can't see,
Your heart is free to feel

No masks,
No clowns, no circus tents,
Just true emotions are revealed.

Topic(s) of this poem: feelings, thoughts


Poet's Notes about The Poem

Don't let a false reality distract you from your emotions, think with your heart before your head and be true to yourself, inflicting no harm on others
