Pandora

Just like that
Old faces become new again
Familiarity disappears
The walls of your safe house
Are flattened around you
Leaving you bare
Exposed and real
You have nothing to hide from the world
It is almost nice to feel the open air surrounding
And for a moment you’re enjoying it
Freedom
Until a moment of feeling
Entraps you once again
Now you’re held captive
By this Venus flytrap
Living inside you
Peering out from your prison
Your mind rattles
Too many thoughts combusting at once
And ricocheting
dangerously close to your chest
Which you keep locked
So that it may not be spoiled by the outside
Or maybe,
Like Pandora’s box,
You keep it sealed
For the sake of humanity.
