: Skeletons In My Cupboard: - Poem by Sukanta Mohapatra

Don’t peep inside
You may not like
What I kept inside for long
Away from world’s prying eyes

Inside my dark corners
I hide it so deftly
No one can see them
Hideous and ugly

Don’t play around with me
You may weaken my resolve
I may open up a bit
And skeletons may tumble

I don’t want you to see them
Some skeletons may be close to you
Who knows we can even find
Skeletons of me and you

My cupboard has a glossy paint
See, touch and admire the outside
Let the doors remain closed
Stop asking about dark inside
