In the House Full of Secrets there was:
A Conspiracy of Silence
A Broken Home
Things that didn’t make sense.
Repressed their Emotions
Lived on the Surface
Lived in the Waters of Forgetfulness
Had Superficial Relationships.
Tried to find out what was going on.
Was fobbed off.
No-one said it, but
Was “told” my feelings were not important.
Slatted Stairs Phobia
Castle Stairs Phobia
Developed a Low Tolerance for Frustration
Where is my place?
Who am I?
