Back in October, I shared with you all my poem ‘5 Minutes’ which seemed to go down well. Today I want to share with you all the very first bit of poetry I ever wrote – it’s called ‘Closed Doors’.
Closed Doors is about a long-term relationship I was in that ultimately destroyed every part of my persona, and it’s only really now that I’m starting to rebuild myself. Poetry is playing a huge part in that. But anyway, I digress, through being in that relationship I shut myself out to anyone through fear of being hurt again. Obviously, there’s a lot more to it than that but I’d like you to interpret my poems in your own way.
All of my poetry is really quite personal to me, it’s an outlet for when I mainly go to a dark place and need to vent. I’m hoping I can start writing some more upbeat pieces to even it out a little. Anyway enough of my ramblings – check it out below.
I closed my doors the moment you said
“The only problem I have left is you.”.
With each and every syllable
you slowly slit my throat.
Through blackened eyes watching me,
watching all that love flow out.
You drowned me in my own blood
and years of self-doubt.
You held me down with an iron fist
until my soul said “No”.
after all those years,
you had the kindness to let me go?
So I sit here behind these heavy, closed doors.
Keys out of reach.
Waiting, for an angel
to set me free.
