My Heart’s Door

Hearts Door Safe Wall

When you come across an empty shell, love isn’t easy to give.  – My dream 2/25

 

On the tip of memory where dreams that dreamers dream

Become safely tucked away in vacant corners of negligence

I stumble along dim corridors seeking my heart’s door

Leaning upon these empty walls of loneliness

Scratching for some recompense for all the years

My happiness lay hidden somewhere far from me

A sonnet’s drifting through my mind that haunts my soul

As tears fall on the letters tied with scarlet thread

I’d gathered from the scattered trail you left behind

Anticipating that I’d find my way to you

Oh heart of mine where did you go what have I done

To inflict such fatal wounds that you should die

Sweet happiness is hidden somewhere far away

Beside my dreams just on the tip of memory
