The Machinations of My Mind

So much lies behind closed doors
Locks tight and bulging
Against slick memories trying
To ooze into the light of day beyond
The darkened corridors of my past
Fearsome places to go unescorted
As I hold back what I am
Trying to carefully present who I am
Properly to you but I know
I cannot forever hold these keys
The demanding parts of my soul
Will one day overpower me
So before that day allow me to
Apologize for the scenes I will cause
The suspicious looks and angry cries
The vicious way I make love
The exhausting ups and frightening downs
The sensitive shell in which I live
The insecurity locked within my eyes
I’m sorry for having to introduce you to
The machinations of my mind
