The Door To Nowhere
Age Group: Adult
The Door To Nowhere
I see you floating there
High above the ground
No entrance and no exit
Where do you lead?
I stare longingly
Drawn to your mystery
And misplaced grace.
I yearn to walk across your threshold
What would await me on the other side?
Is there a new world waiting?
A world without pain
Without guilt and anger and sadness
If I peer through your panes
What will I see?
A glimmer of a life without drugs
A glimpse of freedom
I lean in
My forehead rests against the cool glass
My eyes search for something
But all I find is my own reflection
Staring back at me.
My eyes wet with fear
My soul crying out
Oh beautiful lonely door
If I knock once will you welcome me?
Will you creak open?
Will you allow me in?
I yearn for the world on the other side
I demand the hope that you offer
I am dying inside for the escape
that only you can provide
Author's Notes: This poem was inspired by two men in my life:
My husband (who took the photograph of the "door to nowhere" that I used as my muse) and my brother (who is a meth addict and has provided a blow to my heart yet again) .
