By LinnieJane Burks

Sober and sedate,
My fears and tears,
My hopes and fate
Locked tight within me.

You may converse now with my mind,
But don't inquire about my heart.
It has retreated long before you
To some secret place and part.

Hidden safely
Is the key
That locks my feeling
Inside of me

©circa 1957 Linnie Jane Burks
