Creativity Challenge: Cloud, Volcano, Skeleton

A guest submission for the Creativity Challenge! Numbers 2, 7, and 8: a cloud, a volcano, and a skeleton.

You keep your skeletons

Safely tucked away in your closet.

My demons are not so easily subdued.

The carcasses of my incriminating secrets

Surround me relentlessly,

A thick, heavy black cloud of volcanic ash

That settles down on my shoulders,

A weighty cloak for all the world to see.
