What’s Stored in Your Closet?

A Writer’s Club submission - Linda Penner ©2016

A hoard of meaningless recollection?

A ghost? A skeleton? A sexual orientation?
A clutter of bones from a deed or transgression?
A rail against another’s expectation.
A person I can’t be. 
 
The sickly, cloy of blood red flower.
The disapproving face, so dour.
The piercing glance from ivory tower.
The sad, brash self now made to cower.
The person I once was.
 
Outside the heavy torrents pour
Inside a sorrow stabs the core
Around me many eyes implore
Nowhere to grieve behind closed door
The person she had been
 
 
What’s Stored in Your Closet?
