Close The Door

Close the door when you leave,
place a barrier between our hearts.

This night
I shall be alone –
without tears, without regret.

Close the door when you leave,
pull it tight
and turn the key.

I shall soon forget -
you and I

were never meant to be.

    An arrow that shoots straight to the heart of the matter. I must say
    Val this one is short and to the point. Why beat around the bush when
    it comes to love. If love has died or can no longer flourish why try to
    bring it back to life? A very distinct and poignant write. Bold and beautiful.

    A good poem Val if I May say so. If I don't get my own way I always
    ask my loved one to leave, it's what I'm good at. OK I'll admit I'm selfish
    but when your as good as me, you can be.

    Your King.

    an eye opener f r the many devastated young ones.
    So true, Val, If it was not meant to be, why remain in the illusion of passion.

    Powerful write, love was not found so close the door!

    Closing the door on a feeling that didn't end up being love.............brilliant write. Not really much else to say, other than that it really is wonderful.

    Right to the point........................

    nice, short and sweet, a love not lost just a love not to be

  • Danny Draper (6/20/2013 3:03:00 AM)

    Succint language as often is the heart. Powerful.

  • David Wood (6/19/2013 11:01:00 AM)

    A delightful love poem. Love lost is never easy, early acceptance can be a blessing though.

  • Diane Hine (6/19/2013 5:19:00 AM)

    Resolute words which hint that the speaker really feels unsure of their own feelings. A memorable poem.
