The Little Notebook

This little notebook 

hidden in plain sight

has nothing special 

about it on the outside,

 

but inside 

written across each page 

are stories and hopes

that nobody knows.

 

My struggles 

and heartbreaks 

joys and 

defeats 

 

each poem is 

a part of me.

 

This little notebook

hidden on my desk

is the one thing 

that knows me best 

 

It holds the words

I wish I could say 

and the stories I hope no one hears 

 

it's all of my thoughts 

and all of my fears.

 

In my notebook 

nothing is off limits 

I confess my love 

and express my doubts 

 

without worrying 

about it getting out.

 

This little notebook 

knows all of my scars

and all of my love

It is Me. 

 

This little notebook 

hidden in plain sight

has nothing special 

about it on the outside.

This poem is about: 
Me
