Genie In a Bottle

By 17th December 2012December 9th, 2019No Comments

I have a genie in a bottle

And can never let him out

He knows all my secrets

To no-one he can shout

Feels my deepest pain

Dreams my darkest nightmare

Shares my nameless shame

My own secret picture

Hiding my true self

Locked away for ever

Where no one can see

My genie in a bottle

Hiding me from me
