The Skeleton in my cupboard

Rattled and made a ghastly sound.

The locks jammed and hinges rusting,

Guarding a treasure never to be found.


Of chocolate wrappers, cards, little hearts,

Of old love letters that are moth eaten.

Once pink but slowly fading pale

A fluffy bunny now weather beaten.


A book of poems that promised dreams,

Within the pages a dried rose it holds.

Broken Links of bracelets scattered

With each empty box a story unfolds.


A silver chain that adorned a pretty neck

A lock of hair in its engraved locket trapped.

Let the secret lie locked away forever,

Of unclaimed moments in reminiscence wrapped.
