A Poem by DCT ponderings

I locked it away

Safe in this box

My hopelessly idealist

Romantic heart

For it’s grown weary


I barricaded the Door

Dead bolt fastened tight

You can’t have the key

I'm not ready to be reckless,

I'm safe here inside

where there are no endings


The darkness envelopes me

Hidden from wandering eyes

Silence and solitude my friends

I heal in Silent reverence

Turn inwards towards devotion

Close my connection to the outside

Remembering whispers wept

Of collective consciousness

Some times as they say we "lick our wounds." We must remember though we are not.guaranteed anything, waking up itself is a blessing. Healing comes, life goes on.

Hiya DCT! :) Healing takes time and patience
You are so right. We can lock idealism and let darkness envelope us in its silent reverence . We feel safe somehow but I wonder if that is an illusion or not...A wonderful write...:)...................

You are welcome...:)........................
Sometimes, if we are lucky enough, we can lock away that heartache until we are able to heal. If only we could actually do it, but by compartmentalizing and shutting out the outside world so we might turn within, meditate and feel the silence, then perhaps we can unlock our hearts because we need them to really live. Your poem speaks to the universal pain each of us is familiar with and yet so often we don't know what to do with it.

Everything full circle and renewed. Sometimes it helps to remember that. Thanks Leandro
So many things locked away...I think we all do this. Our idealism, our hopefullness, our sanity at times...but even in doing so, there is never any way to seal that box for good. Sometimes we need a break, a moment outside of ourselves, but we must come back, because that is the nature of the world.

Very nicely written, with great imagery and flow. Well done!
