Free Verse


The sound coming from the closet gets
Louder with each passing hour
Moans and groans bones rattle
The door knob turns but doesn’t open
The shame remains hidden behind the barrier
Evil laughter comes from the other side
Whisper of loneliness adds to the mix
Secrets line the four corners
Deception fills the cracks
Illicit cravings feed on
Pretty little liars
Seducing hungry eyes looking
To add to the over flowing riddles
Banging to get out
Reveal to the world fake smiles
And polite kisses are a smoke screen
To the true meaning behind each passionate touch
One last chance is taken for escape
Crossing a threshold to revelations
The solid panel is strong not giving way to
The pressure
For now skeletons remain securely locked away
Until the next attempt
