Knock Upon the Door (poem)

Updated on August 29, 2013

That knock upon the door

With hope spewed on the floor

The world which made me soar

Much darker than before

Was it her


The morning had its glow

A Joy it would bestow

On all I came to know

Now seems so long ago

Was it her


Was it a sunny day

When future turned to grey

And things got in the way

Which cast a love astray


I wonder could this be

A couple blessed as we

Who wiled in endlessly

Gave way to misery


And now inside my room

Alone to face my gloom

With this my soul consume

A lingering perfume

Was it her


My mind has come undone

The truth and ruse are one

And so I’m forced to run

With shadows I should shun


They temp me with their tale

All masked behind their veil

With them I will prevail

Just end this and we’ll sail

Was it her


So there upon the floor

With dreams of so much more

My life began to pour

Came knocking at the door

Was it her

Music only

      Was it her? Perhaps it was - and you have left us with the mystery in your lovely poem.
