The door cannot remain closed

I stare, ponder and quiver

I twitch, gnaw and flutter

I cannot open the door

I can’t go in to see
I want to know

I need to understand

I have to believe
I’m transfixed

I’m elevated

But the door remains closed

Cannot turn that handle
I will rise

I can return

I am en route
My feelings engulf the air

The ashes fuel the flame

The door must give way

To a new me

The door cannot remain closed

  1. The bird will watch from a safe distance the dog gnaw on a bone but yet in trepidation it will flutter, though only momentarily until it writes a new opera that will twitter the world with unending song. A bird has no need for a door when the sky is open.
