Password (day 34)

I need a password to reopen

something gone frozen,

a fresh pearl page to restart


Quiet, not especially striking,

nothing to my liking

so I turn in my cards and restart


Wind through my cold bones

hope my soul isn’t unknown

to whoever I’m inventing now


I’m a riddle’s answer you can’t find

a shifting, misshapen outline

maybe I’ll never know how


To be a human with a past

I don’t want who I am to last

I want to be the girl nobody saw


I hold the key to a twisted mystery

but words can open suddenly

the secret side door nobody saw

Not my best...kinda shit...but 200 day challenge requires writing till the water runs clear, so I'm going with it.
