Family Secrets


Mutterings in old darkness
Muted scratching’s against febrile conscience
Whisperings of unheard syllables
Ancestral ghouls
Hidden in time’s detritus

Secrets
Concealed amongst familial china
Bone fragile, time cracked
Sit in dusty silence
Cold mementos

Keepsakes past down
Relics to keep me safe
Keep the secrets
Keep the silence
Choked smile, cracking face

Inherited mementos
Smashed in anger
Ghouls warnings scorned
Towering rage fed
From secrets of the past
