Behind Closed Doors - Poem by Kayla Barker

Oh, no...
Brace yourself
Here come those blood curdling screams.
They're begging to be set free.

But, I lock them up,
Throw away the key,
And hope they stay inside of me.

My god, my everything
No...
A wolf in sheep’s clothing.

Morbid thoughts.
So impure,
And the secrets that they hide.

Turned my world upside down.
My heaven,
Now my hell.

You choked me with my halo,
And tugged me off my cloud.

Free-fall Free-fall,
Ha, no.
I plummeted.

But like you said,
No one has to know.
Because, well...

Secrets lie behind closed doors.

Again...
I throw away the key.
