In the Closet

I hide in the closet and escape the thundering voices the lightning quick flashes of insanity In the closet I go unnoticed I cannot feel their thoughts their words cannot puncture me their anger cannot infect me I hide from yellowed skin forked tongues dripping fangs striking and hissing like cobras in duet I hide afterward I crawl peeking through the crack light on my face, careful the door doesn’t creak I quell the light dark and hushed then I notice the closet door is ajar Tiptoe, tiptoe so dark within green tentacles reaching I slam the door and run! I peep from beneath the covers you know there are monsters in the closet

    In the midst of darkness it comes,
    mind flashing with thoughts of morbidity.

    Dancing the dance, singing the song,
    facing the unknown.

    The closet is a mere door,
    something to be open and shut.

    Do not let your memories fade,
    embrace them and own them for they are yours.

    Gather your might, fling the door wide,
    clear free the dust, and webs.

    There is nothing there that can harm you,
    walking in it is a mirror you see.

    Facing yourself you have to ask,
    Is that me?
