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.
