Shut That Door Again - A Poem

Updated on July 7, 2017

Dear Readers,

People said once you got the core of your problem, the solution will come to you as easy as you breath. But actually, this is not always the case.

In my study about human emotion I found, there are people who walk around sources of emotion and refused to get involved with others too close, to the point of never trusting their love and life on other's hand.

They was lead by fear and helpless to break through the cycle. They always craving love but afraid to the outcome of loving someone. Their heart already seen it better days; worned out by the pain so bad caused it block itself from the world. It will fail to see the solution even it already lined up in front of the person. It just terribly painful and caused the emptiness grow, succumbed all sign of happiness until it gone away, and the person will be drown inside boring life.

This poem tried to capture this emotion. And I always love playing with words.

I hope it is enjoyable.

Thank you



Almost all the pain already unfolds

Recognition beyond believe

Weaknesses starting to line up

Showing up its shameless facelift

Little by little, in slow paces

It created undeniable hollow

Battered heart, Shattered faces

Where is the rope it was follow?

I know now


In my way to isolated the pain

Tears failed to flow


But then even in realization, I’d see

How frightening it is to be free

Alone in this disturbing world

Try to catch something to hold

And that was why


I gave kisses

To the painful heart

Asked for it forgiveness

Hope for it lightness

Before mentally shut the door again

Right after sent all bravery away

Let's sit with mother’s hen

And gave away the end

    Indeed. But isn't it a good thing? Make us remember how subjective our mind can be. Make us rich with unique colorful stories.

    Thank you.

    if we have such background along with our writing specially with the poem, than only it is easy to grab the condition and the sense of poem otherwise we can't interpret most of the poem, the author present something else and we interpret otherwise.

    And the poem here is as great as usual

    Lovely poem. I believe we must always leave the door a bit ajar when it comes to love otherwise we just might lose something even more precious if a true love comes our way.

    I felt the pictures were like turning a page; giving us time to reflect.

    There are maybe a bit too many pictures in it; it's difficult to read.
