My life seems full of doors:

some open, what’s beyond them

done, wanting me to stay;

some ajar, tempting, though I

know behind some lies mischief;

some are firmly closed, locked and

loaded with possibilities and dread,

leaking strange scents


These I sometimes attempt to open:

try all those odd spare keys, get my

screwdriver out, though I

draw the line at jemmies,

hammers or hatchets, since I would

rather be locked out than

force a door I wished I had

never opened.

    So vivid and compelling. Really, really well done!

    There is a lot packed into those last lines. I would not have understood this at 22, in fact I would have laughed at the concept. But oh , I totally get this now

      It’s taken me a long time to find the right words for this photo (I took it nearly two years ago), so bless you for appreciating them 🙂 x
