The Closet

The Closet

I’m trapped

In a closet

Where it’s so dark

I can not even see the chain

To pull and turn the light on

I can barely breathe in this closet

Feels just like a python

Is coiled around me

I hate being trapped in this closet

  • But still

  • Outside the closet

    It seems it would be darker

    With people watching

    Every step I take

    Judging me like Olympic judges

    Judging my every move

    Peoples stares wrapping around me

    Just like a python

    Making it hard for me to breathe

    So I think I’ll just stay

    Trapped in a closet

    Where no one can see who I am

    Eyes.. They aren't scarey,
