The Drawer


Open me, please

Let me unravel my content

Layer by layer, please strip

me naked


Prepare yourself, be careful

There are lots of sharp 

objects in here

Ready to strike, out of fear


Stay calm

Open me slow

Disarm all the pins and needles

Put away the scissors


Gently handle the knives 

and razors

Give it time, don’t rush

Be cautious 


I don’t want to hurt you

Push you away

Sometimes I act in self-defense 

Please understand 


Don’t stop

Dig deep, to the bottom

Be patient 

Please, find my secret...

This piece is beautiful Anya! There is such a sensual element to the first couple of line. This piece is very well crafted and left me wanting more.

" I don't want to hurt you
push you away
sometimes I act in self- defence
please understand"

Gentle and vulnerable, a poem to be whispered.
