Tears and thoughts

Im in a dark space right now. It’s small and there’s not a lot of room. I’m in a closet. The liquid that runs from my swollen eyes is cold. I’m by myself;meaning I’m lonely all by myself. No one knows I’m here. I stay here all the time but I’m the only one who knows. It’s my shield. I wish I could show other people it;but my mind doesn’t let me. It runs through every scenario. It drives me crazy and I end up back in the closet,with my tears. It’s my private place. Normally a private place is relaxing for someone but this one isn’t. I’m trapped in this place. And no one knows. I can’t leave it so I stay here with my tears and thoughts. But my mom knocks on the door. I don’t answer and frantically I wipe my tears instead. She opens the door and says concerned “are your okay sweetie?”  I’m facing the wall sitting on my bed. “I fine!” I say holding back tears. I thought about every thing that is wrong behind those words. Those 2 words are the ones are on the lock to my closet door. She says “okay” shutting the door and walking away. I turn around and look at the door. And say to my self I’m not. I look at my closet door in my room and say out loud with the tears pouring out of my tired eyes “I’m gay”.
