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

      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?

      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.

      Ah, so sad, perhaps the young man will grow from the experience.

      "Yet, why she left she wouldn't say...." mesmerizing, emotional and sad. You truly have a gift for poetry that sings to the heart.

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