Behind The Door

Behind The Door

A Poem by Aries1984
"

Every night I wonder, what lurks in the darkness behind my bedroom door.

"
I sit here in my brightly lit room at night
Looking at the darkness seeping in through the bottom of the door
For behind it, waits what loves to give fright
Making me wonder just what's in store.

What stands behind me that which shields me with light?
Whats in that terrifying deep darkness?
Why do I fear the darkness of night?
Could it be the uncertainty of it being harmless?

The feelings I feel, the images I get
Of what could possibly be waiting behind that door
It brings the chills, the isolation, the fret
Of something sinister and much more.

The feeling of being watched by eyes
That can see me, but I can only feel
The fear inside of me begins to rise
The insidious unknown is real.

The insidious unknown is certainly real
For darkness defines that which is creepy
An unexplored territory requiring reliance on touch and feel
In the darkness that penetrates so deeply.

Yet my mind conjures that on the other side
Is an entity about to grab hold of the knob
And just at any moment I expect to hide
Just in case that door begins to throb.

"A dark shadow figure must stand there" I say
I feel it's sinister red eyes trying to pierce through the door
And it's because of this every I pray
For God to keep me safe and put an angel on the floor.

So I keep that door all locked and shut
Against what can frighten me to the core
Because I don't exactly know just what
Lurks behind the door.

What's behind the door is the unexplored territory of your future. That unknown thing that exudes anxiety in a lot of us. Besides that, I like this poem for the way you wrote it and the suggestion that there could be something more ominous waiting on the other side. Interesting, very interesting.

Hello there,
You reveiwed my piece and in that review you gave me an advice to check out your work,I got to say it is the best advice I've ever got.

In this piece there are two main labels-Thriller and Suspence.It touches that fear you've always head,it is scary.

Playing around words is very important for a poet and I got to admit you are very good.Disguising the thing behind the door is very characteristic.

I got engrossed with that thing behind the door,I wanted to know what was it but the suspence kept it fun and fearful.

Great Piece.
