The Shadow Of The Door (poem)

Updated on March 4, 2014

She never noticed shadow of the door

The emptiness its closure seemed to make

The dismal sound of heart about to break

He’s gone and left her crying on the floor


That shadow deep within her feelings toy

Through cutting pain to nothingness of night

Confusion is her only steady plight

Fond memories this bitterness destroy


She feels the shadow’s finger point to her

For surely it was she who was to blame

Forgiveness turned its back upon her shame

And she was doomed to live within this blur


But then she noticed truth of finger’s flow

A table sitting just beyond her gloom

There on it was a tiny light in bloom

A candle of her wishes long ago
