"Trapped in the Closet Chapter 2" as written by and Robert S. Kelly....
Now he's staring at me like
As if he was staring in the mirror
She yells honey let me explain
He says you don't have to go no further
I can clearly see what's going on
Behind my back, in my bed, in my home
Then I said wait a minute now hold on
I said Mister we can work this out
She said honey don't lose control
Tried to get him to calm down
He says ho I should've known
That you would go and do some bogus shit up in my house
But the christian in me gave you the benefit of the doubt
I said we need to resolve this
And he stepped to me
I'm like whoa
There's a reason I'm in this closet
He says yeah what are you talking ?clothes?
I met this girl at the Pajis club
And she told me she didn't have a man
Then he said man please I'd kill you
If you didn't have that gun in your hand
And then I said but your chick chose me
He said don't give me that mack shit please
His phone goes off and then
Things get a little more interesting
He steps a little closer
I point my gun and say I'm not the one you're after
He says it's not my bet you didn't know my man
Did she tell you I was a pastor?
I said well good that's better right
Why can't we handle this Christian like
And I started to put the gun down
Til I saw his face still had a frown
She started crying saying baby I'm sorry
Then he said baby not as sorry as you're gonna be
I started inching out
He says no I want you to see this
Said I gotta get out this house
He said not til I reveal my secret
I'm like what is going on inside his head
Then he takes his phone and calls somebody up and says
Turn the car around
(What's going on? What's wrong?)
I just need for you to get right back here now

He looks at me and says
Well, since we're all coming out the closet
I'm not about to be the only one broken hearted
She said what do you mean?
He said just wait and see
I said somebody better talk to me
And then his phone rings
He picks up
And somebody says sweetheart I'm downstairs
And he's like I'll buzz you up
I'm on the fifth floor hurry take the stairs
And I'm like who is this mystery lady that you're talking to
He says in time you both will know the shocking truth
Baby this is something I've been wanting to get off my chest for a long, long time
Then I said I'm gon shoot you both if you don't say what's on your mind
He says wait I hear somebody coming up the stairs
And I'm looking at the door
He says I think you better sit down in a chair
I said I'm going to count to four
He says mister wait
She says please don't shoot
He says don't shoot me
She screams
Then a knock at the door
The gun's in my hand
He opens the door
I'll be god fucked up like shit fuck it a man comin' to fuck me up and give me head fuck
He opens the door, I can't believe it's a man

    General CommentAlready the titular literal closet is done away with, and we see that the title of the narrative refers to broader themes. Most obviously, Rufus was “trapped in the closet” as well; he was carrying out a secret gay romance, but he has exposed it to Cathy and R. Kelly so that they might see that their infidelity cannot make a fool of him. One could also see “the closet” as a metaphor for all the sneaking and deception carried out by the various adulterous characters: the closet is the thing that keeps R. Kelly and Rufus’s adulterous affairs hidden.
    The chapter starts out with one of the narrative’s most telling expositions of the themes of deception and adultery. Rufus stares at R. Kelly “as if he was staring in the mirror.” In R. Kelly, Rufus sees himself: tricky, adulterous, and cocky. Rufus’s anger at R. Kelly is probably not centered upon the fact that he had relations with his wife, but is more probably a product of Rufus’s own insecurities. In R. Kelly, he sees his ugly reflection.

    R. Kelly’s uneasy relationship with God is further illuminated in Chapter Two. Upon Rufus’s revelation that he is a pastor, R. Kelly once again tries to use his fair-weather faith to weasel his way out of a difficult situation. He suggests that he and Rufus work out the situation “Christian-like,” but is seemingly unaware of the irony of his statement, considering that he has just committed adultery and is currently threatening a pastor with a gun.

    Little insight is gained into Cathy’s personality in this chapter. She seems to be overwhelmed with the situation, and her gift for trickery fails her when she is confronted with her husband’s anger and R. Kelly’s needless violent threats.
