White Framed Door
White Framed Door | Source

The white-framed door

Perfectly mounted, undisturbed

Standing still unstained but

Holding secrets of a troubled soul.


Bearing pains of yesterday

Mysteries deeply hidden,

How long will it remain

Closed, undisturbed?


Great seekers of truth

Could they one day find

The keys to unlock

The terms in between?


Behind the white-framed door

Are memories neatly tucked

Into the crevices of a heart

And of a grief stricken soul.




With eyes in despair

Heart in exile and banishment

Will it be safe to open

The white-framed door?


Will it be safe to snitch

In time and space

And when it’s finally disclosed,

Can peace be attained?


Or death it will deliver

From the conjuring door?

The white-framed door

Is maybe best left in its place.

Closed. ~

      Doris Dancy: Thank you. I think sometimes it's best to simply just leave the past behind and move through the experience and the lesson(s) it gave us and as you said focus on the "here and now".

      Appreciate your kind words and your generous votes.

      Love from the sky~

      What beautiful words in the midst of pain. I think you are right…let the past be the past and open the doors to the present which is all we can be sure of …the here and now. What a fantastic article!! Voted up beautiful, awesome, interesting, and useful.

      I thought this would be about a literal white door, but instead it is about a relationship and what to do about it. I love what you wrote, and the fact that you used a white door as the object to explain the circumstance of your poem.

      Yes, there are many doors in life that are closed to us, and should remain closed. Lots of memories behind that door: some good, some bad.

      Beautiful work. Voted UP, etc.

      Your have captured the essence perfectly. I knew a lady that never went out, but to check on her, she would open the door for lasagna. I fed her for a couple of years until she passed, the poor thing.

      This is most meaningful and speaks to me - perhaps many have those secrets, those agonising thoughts - keeping the door closed or opening is a dilemma. Thank you

      This is awesome and thought-provoking. We all have secrets that are behind our doors and sometimes we stand outside the door of others not knowing if we just knock and they let us in or we should let the doors closed.

      Old albion: My teacher once told me that in order to be an effective writer, you must be able to take your readers along with you, intrigue them and let them be puzzled. Then, they'll keep on coming back to you. Just like an afternoon soap opera...we wonder what's going to happen next and so it is....to be continued.

      Thank you for your visit. Truly happy to see you here.

      I say open the door and if you can't find the keys, find another way. You can open the door yourself without telling anyone at all. Open the door for yourself and air the room of all the painful memories rather than holding them inside. A door doesn't have to stop you. Break the glass. Blow the door down with a mighty breath. Don't allow the door to be an obstacle.

      Yes indeed we all have doors with secrets deeply hidden, I've penned a few poems about my doors from my past, I pray that yours is firmly shut, if there is unhappiness and sorrow hidden behind. Keep flying high and stay away from the pain if there is some, keep it closed forevermore sweet poet.

      The white framed door should be opened to let your soul run free and see the beauty of life. I love the last post before the song. Those words are words of hope and moving forward.
