A lover of secrets

My heart padlock by Paula Converse

For as long as I can remember I have dreamt about getting a padlock tattoo. When I was younger I was very secretive and wrote everyday in my padlocked diary about an unrequited crush or a first kiss. As in childhood, in adulthood I enjoy keeping certain things private or sharing things with only selected people.

Here is my heart-shaped padlock, it represents my secrets, now I wonder who holds the key to it?
