Treasure chest

You keep some of you hidden
in your own personal treasure chest
in which you store the sparkle
and hide the shining bits
that only come out in those sneaky
moments squeezed between the dark.

How I wish that I could open that chest
and pull out those diamonds for
everyone to see in the joy of light;
how I wish that those who just know
the dark that consumes you
might see those moments too
and know that joy of clarity as well.
