  1. I love this…I got into poetry for much the same reason. I have too many secrets for a journal and I am to paranoid to trust so I write my autobiography in poetry within which I hide little markers only I can decode.

    1. Yup! I’ve become very cryptic because of my mother’s need to read my most personal thoughts. I wish I could say she stopped haunting my writing, but now she thinks every poem is a testament to hey feelings about her… lol She is my muse I will admit! Thank you for responding. I see a part 2 in this conversation.

      1. Haha I definitely can understand your view point. For me it grew until now I can’t hardly write anything without trying to be cryptic. Even on my password protected computer in hidden files…it’s almost as if it’s easier for me to hide some of the deeper darker things.
