Door To Distant Shore (poem)

Welcome home once more

Written on my door

Sign I’d seen before

In some distant shore

-

But why should they bother me now

These simple words of welcome shed

Upon an entrance to a room

Which was my nightly resting place

-

Curious and more

What real meaning bore

Why my soul it tore

On some distant shore

-

Undaunted by its haunting spell

Within my mind I searched for trace

This lock which barred me from my rest

With mysteries of its embrace

-

Anger fear and more

Threw words on the floor

Where I saw blood pour

From some distant shore

-

As terror took a heart from me

Within myself what thoughts now race

I felt each second’s lonely pace

A rising fog would madness grace

-

Here I am once more

Facing endless door

With the curse I bore

Not so distant shore

-

Within that room waits bitter lace

Tears of shame and pain’s embrace

A memory I can’t erase

And once more nightmare I must face

I've had my share of ugly experiences. I choose more carefully now. The safest choice is no choice at all.
