Door To Distant Shore (poem)

Updated on May 24, 2015

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.
