closet

once a comfortable closet
has become suffocating.

alone and in denial
of what the truth holds.

the closet once a safe space
has become a prison.

itching to show true self
holds back in fear.

the closet that once was huge
has shrunk.

cracks appear it's slowly falling apart
the truth will come out eventually.

what is okay with other people
but not in this family.

the closet is almost breaking
but the truth is far worst out than in.
