"And I fear not what man can do; for perfect love casteth out all fear..."

My heart is a locked box
And no one has the key
Inside are many treasures
And secret parts of me

Every night it opens up
Dreams dance around the room
It closes in the morning
But all the nightmares loom

I'm overpowered by these fears
All locked inside my heart
That's why I keep my feelings hid
They'd tear me all apart

Too long have they been hiding
In this box without a key
My heart is getting heavy
They're tearing holes in me

The author's comments:
For everyone who feels like they must keep their true feelings hidden
