Behind Closed Doors

Behind closed doors.

Secrets Hidden,
Lonely Minds,
Broken hearts,
Tears Broke,
Agreements made ,
Realities unmasked,
Suppressed feelings,
Outburst released,
Promises Broken,
Words Lost,
Untold stories,
Courage crushed,
Fear Instilled.

These are not just doors.
Sometimes a never ending hole,
one sinks into.
Sometimes invisible bounds,
pushed into.
Sometimes pushed by power or numbers greater.
Sometimes by thoughts or norms if not followed.
Sometimes to curb the freedom from ones life.

When you know such doors,
Ring the bell,
Make a call.
Knock the door.
Ask for water.
Give a shoutout.
Strike a word.
Give a surprise visit.
Show you care.
Let them know there’s world out there,
They can reach out to,
That cares and can help.
Beyond those closed doors.
