A Notebook

Always shut, but never frowning -
It lazily lay upon her wooden desk.
Would it let me peak?
 
Twitching pencils held by twitching hands,
It now lay open.
But what does it say?
 
The keeper of her secrets
The guardian of her lies
The holder of her fears
 
Always shut but never frowning.
 
Long hair blows,
Like paper-thin pages
Wet eyes smudge,
Like paper-thin pages
 
Always shut but never frowning -
But what does it say?
