The Door to Reality


You came knocking on my door.
The door to reality.
The door that often gets jammed, trapping me inside for periods of time.
I open the door; trembling.
Knowing if I made a mistake by allowing you in, I would fall.
Knowing that my story is out, my every thought, secret and sin,
now lying in your hands like a powerful fire that could rage and destroy at anytime.
My full trust embeds itself in you.
And, almost as quick as you came
You help me cross the threshold back into reality.

    This is a fantastic poem! You open the door, wrestle with the pitfalls of reality, and come through it unscathed. This is so well written with great meaning in few words. Your parting line could not be more perfect. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
