In This Closet


It's hard to breathe in here

The air is tainted with dust.

I'm cramped, I'm trapped, I'm stuck

In this closet


I wish I could leave, but I can't,

For I will receive hate and rejection if I did.

So i'll just sit in this uncomfortable silence

And make myself at home once more

In this closet

  • Comment from author about the poem: As an agender, asexual, and aromantic person, I feel very unrepresented in the lgbt+ community. I made this poem for everyone hiding their sexuality/gender identity, although I personally wrote it because I have been in the closet about all identities listed for a long time. My whole school knows, but my parents and relatives do not. I am here for all of the queer, rejected kids who come on social media sights for love and acceptance that people in real life do not give you.
