A wall of boxes

some tiny
some small
& some not so small
painted
different colours
colour of a bruise
red
yellow
purple
brown
stretching
as far as my minds eye
can see
wide
tall
some have locks
with keys
bright yellow warning signs
skulls
& bones
& some have none
but loose hinges
to flap open
at any time
these are my hurt
memory boxes
every blow
tongue lash
deed of shame
error of judgement
made against
or by me
is recorded here
some are small enough
to only carry
a stifled scream
half tear
minor regret
others
will not be opened
unless
I am in the right company
of brave souls
who will fight the demons
within
together
but loose hinge boxes?
they flap open
any time I am awake
to bring pain
remorse
sad regret
from time ago
into the now
these are the ones
I’d love
to find the keys for
