Hide Out


smiling to stop
questions that pry
what hurts is mine

a familiar face
walks through the door
I turn away

2 a.m. – a storm
rages my dreams
keep me safe

    The third one could be a storm rages . . . dreams keep her safe or a storm rages her dreams, please keep me safe. Interesting both ways.
