this is not a story but a poem i happened to write for my creative writing class. i just want to share it. Also, it is on my blog: ctqzkim.blogspot.com

here it is...


RAINBOW-X

She peeks from the ajar door
sees the rainbow flag
And feels freedom right there
Inside the closet, eyes closed
Scared the people will know

He sees the pink triangle
And knows what it means
Hidden world, sweet smile
Joy of acceptance he welcomes
But afraid to go and be bold

She closes the door, nothing
Weeping in her sleep
Longing for "her", so long
But "she" doesn’t know
And she keeps it like forever

He looks at them, nothing
talks to himself in solitude
wishes he could wear his heart
right on his sleeves for "him" to know
But "no" was his own answer.

Why is the world so cruel?
Disapproving are the eyes
Judgment know no boundaries
Breaking into the closet of secrets
Breaking the solace and mysteries.
