Closing Doors

Closing Doors short poem

Photo by perriscope

Love is waiting for me to choose.
What do I want? Do I want you?
The past is pulling me away from my future.
Fearful steps forwards or backwards;
Do I want to win her heart or remain a loser?
She is my magnet, drawing me in
And all I can think is I must leave.
All I want is love, but woe is me.
My heart is sad; my only remedy,
Is to leap into love, arms wide open, not scared.
So why do I keep walking away, when I should always be there?
Ready and waiting for the feel of her touch,
Instead I am falling into a hole of despair.
I hate my mind that lies; I’m screaming out for a sign.
Just tell me what to do; help me to find,
The answers I am forever searching for.
When my heart should be welcoming her in,
I am only able to close the door.

Fairy Doors

Fairy Doors short poem

Sometimes, it looks beautiful and loving, Our thoughtless acts and thirst of beauty, Make much harm to the sweet beloved, We ultimately stop the outburst of beauty. Making fairy doors in the stems of trees, Looks beautiful and charms exploiting,
