The Girl Behind The Door

The Girl Behind The Door

A Poem by Anastasia Purvis
"

There are several realities and endless possibilities simultaneously existing. What are yours? Derrière la porte...

"
Years of frustration burden her heart
She’s aware of the scars still there
Wants a change but where to start?
Clears her head, ignores their stares

As she walks passed them, she’s alone
And yet the room is full of fools
She turns to see them, hearts of stone
Smiles so fake equate a mules.

Game face on she thanks them softly
Hears the whispers and laughs unkind
A cold hearted world in which we live
Precarious position in which we find

Ourselves today when we define
Who we are and where we should be
She wonders if she’ll ever be free
To be ‘who’ she wants to be, you see

And suddenly she stumbles upon him
Shocked at things she learns anew
Talented, yes, he’s always been but this
Philosophy is fascinating, fabulous too!

Her heart begins to pound, eyes wide
Butterflies inside and she cries, she cries.
His words have evoked so much inside
That she thought was lost long ago.

And so she’ll love him from afar
Dreaming of him and wishing on a star
Praying God will grant her this only wish
To join their souls in eternal bliss.

Is there more? We’ll have to see…
But if you’re reading this, my love to be
I can only say how much you mean to me
And I intend to wait, for I believe

Your heart and mind is well worth
The quiet nights I’ve spent alone
And no one-NO one will ever compare
To thee. I love you and I love you and me.

Signed, The Girl Behind the Door

I liked how you told a story in the poem and it also reads like a love letter to me especially the end. A good piece with a nice flow and rhythm. But I think the colour of the text needs changing. Seems as if you wrote this in fading ink ;p ;)

Your words expose a heart bearing all. Your poem talks of courage, defiance and staying true to your beliefs. We pray that love cures all and that certain person carries our heart in the hands. We are all vulnerable to defending our feelings and selling our passions. Your poem speaks of all of this
Thank you for this fine work.

Absolutely, without a doubt.
Soft tone and smooth flow with good choice of words that rhyme too. Beautifully written.
(The color of the font is a bit light and creates difficulty in reading)
