Rictameter Verse: The Hidden Gate

In this Rictameter Verse, “The Hidden Gate.”

Some of us hold the most profound emotions, bottled up of the struggles, of pain, of grief, and even of love, and only waiting for someone to help reveal, expose these hidden feelings…To open their hidden gate. To feel the release through talking, consoling, and possibly tears. Healing.

The Hidden Gate

behind a wall, 
secrets concealed, the kind
Camouflaged of colors and lines.
Some are of bright color, others are dark.
Entrance, emotional gate
reveal of heart wanting
To open. Not
