Knocking on Your Door - a Poem

Updated on October 23, 2012
“She knocked and waited, because when the door was opened from within, it had the potential to lead someplace quite different.” ― Laini Taylor, Daughter of Smoke and Bone

“I removed all the doors to our love, 
so you can’t lock yourself away 
from me. But I didn’t stop there. 
I also replaced the doors with metal 
detectors, so I could fondle you more 
efficiently, like the highly 
trained professionals do who run 
airport security.
” Jarod Kintz




Hey Darling, I’m knocking on your door

You’ve said if I wanted you, just knock

I’ve knocked three times,

I don’t wanna be banging on the floor.


C’mon Baby, open the door you see

I’m firing up, I wanna jump on you

I wanna be with you, that’s where I wanna be

So hear my knocks, don’t you want me?


Here we are in my thoughts, you and I

We’re climbing, sliding atop double rainbows

Running wild and free in the fields over fresh grass

Hundreds of ‘em, cupid’s copper red arrows flying by.


We lay on the ground, no soft flannel blanket to spread

Our bodies well entwined like an aged tree’s vine

Wet kisses followed like morning’s misty dew, then you said,

Don’t worry Hon, the day is new, it’s too soon to end.


Beneath the marshmallow clouds, no intention to refrain

The merging of thirsty hearts blessed by a shower of rain

Then a little bunny came sweetly kissed both my feet

I whisper in his ear, “tell him my bunny, he is driving me insane.”


Now, I want to only cuddle and cradle you in my arms

‘Til like a baby you fall asleep, your silky hair brushing my cheek

So dear Darling, tell the honey bees you love me every day

But take all things slowly dear girl, a scruffy-winged butterfly warns.


“Hey Hon, wake up. How long have you been sittin’ there?”

“I heard some knocks, but saw no one out my door,”

“I’m glad that you’re here, was just dreaming ‘bout you,”

“We climbed, slid down double rainbows and to a place nowhere.”

      Thanks for sharing more info, Epi, music lover! I have a hard time remembering my favourite singers and favourite songs. Even scrolling on Youtube will get me listening to something else if I can't find what I'm trying to look for, hehe! Of course, The Beatles will stay with me forever, but they are not the only great ones out there. Thanks again, boy, you know so many!

      Rod Stewart did some great work with his earlier band - The Faces which featured pre-Stones Ron Wood and a classic song called Stay with Me - and an earlier incarnation of that band was called Small Faces with one of my all time favorite vocalists Steve Marriot - and yes you are right - when in doubt , go to You Tube because they have 'everything' ......lake erie time 10:19pm listening to an Electronica compilation cd courtesy of Mojo magazine - check out Mojo Magazine online - it's a world class music mag.

      My goodness, Epi, you are making me imagine all these things and the running free of your cat on the beach with the 'Chariots of Fire' playing! Are there great owls, eagles or hawks near your area? Please be careful of Gabriel. I don't want him to be snatched like that story of a woman and her tiny white poodle strolling out in the evening, as story-told by the workers at Rouge Park, a grey owl snatched the little dog.

      Epigramman, I am nowhere near to your talents. You are the one who can write any style, create any mood and so on...

      I'm going to check out Rod Stewart's Every Picture album...on Youtube. Thanks for the joy!

      ...well you'll find me forever knocking on your hub door my dear friend, esteemed colleague and fellow Canadian. You are such a special writer with such an amazing wealth of talent. You can write any style, create any mood and pick any genre in which to compose your beautiful, soulful and profound thoughts - beyond that - Epi is once again speechless although out of admiration and respect for your craft.

      My favorite Rod Stewart album is Every Picture tells a story - and tonight because I am off will be loud music night with a few brown pops and some howling at the new moon - lol - had a nice walk before dark with my deaf cat Gabriel along our beach - and he was running free like a minature white horse by the shoreline with the music from Vangelis' Chariots of Fire - lake erie time 9:05pm

      Oh the power of love! Indeed it makes us nuts even in our sleep, eh? So, catch your dreams and make it happen even if it means breaking that beautiful door.

      This is a sweeping hub, intensely expressed and you are blessed with a creative mind.

      Have a good night my friend.
