Door To Door (poem)

Updated on September 23, 2015

A lover went from door to door

In search of what he had before

A dream perhaps or so much more

Yet why she left he’s still not sure

-

Her kisses felt the same that day

She’d smile and cause his heart to stray

And all their cares seemed far away

Yet why she left she didn’t say

-

Soft shadows linger by the door

His thoughts unknown they drift and stray

His feelings somewhere locked away

And where were tears he wasn’t sure

-

His loneliness now clouds his day

He never knew such pain before

Yet when it’s gone he yearns for more

So he won’t feel what truth may say

-

He held the cause of this he’s sure

He wanted her who wanted more

A story which he heard before

And so he searches door to door

      It is beautiful, yes, but letting go after the grief has subsided is more in order.

      Morning Martin.

      A lovely poem, as we've come to expect from you.

      I find many truths in your poems. As with this one, some people just can't let go.

      Hmmm, I've heard of door-to-door salesmen, but looking for love door-to-door, interesting. I understand though, when one door closes, another opens . . . maybe in love or not?
