Poem : She Kept Her Quiet

The closet is a dark place.
But it has the safety of anonymity.

The closet is a dark place.
But it has the safety of anonymity.
Cold and lonely inside,
You don’t see anyone and no-one sees you.
Sometimes truth is a price too heavy to pay.
Sometimes all you wish for is,
A little cowardice mixed with a nod from society.
Her heart wished to soar,
The mind knew better.
And she kept her quiet!

The stranger was beautiful,
Strong in and strong out.
Dark eyes read her clear,
Ruby lips called her near.
She wanted to go closer,
Live a little,
Experience the danger.
Her heart wished to soar,
The mind knew better.
And she kept her quiet!

Maybe it’s a passing thought,
Maybe family does know better.
How can she be sure?
That she needs something other!
They had given her a moment to consider,
But what could she say?
Not lose everything, everyone she had.
Her heart wished to soar,
The mind knew better.
And she kept her quiet!
