What's Behind the Door

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

we really don't know what's behind the door, until you peek and prepare for a shock that knocks off your feet...
