On Love and Repression:

A scrooge with emotions
Controlling, condescending
Monitoring each move
With vigilance unending

To keep them locked up
Deep down within
Repressed and unknown
Even to him

Bottled up safely
Impenetrable fortress
Banished from day
The spell of a sorceress

But present they are
Encoded, enshrined
In her body’s memory
Detailed and defined

Waiting for love
Compassion, affection
A tender awareness
And subtle detection

Befriended and felt
Known through sensation
In the safety of love
And self-validation
