The Secret Door

The Secret Door

A Poem by Sarah
"

Secrets of the mind

"


She followed the scent, through the secret door.
Intoxicating perfume, she had smelt before.

A splendid sight, of flowers and trees.
A feeling of love, and a soul at ease.

She was slightly scared, but felt a presence.
A slight whisper, an angelic essence.

"Why am i here", she gently called out.
"Am i dreaming, whats it about".

The sky changed colors, the breeze was warm.
The birds chirped out heavenly songs.

She danced through the meadow, her mind wild and free.
Her happiness halts, at the sound of a key.

"No, I'm not ready," she yells in pain.
"Leave me here, you have nothing to gain".

The secret door creeks and cries,
as it drags her essence through the skies.

Standing in front of the secret door,
her heart ached, her tears did pour.

She heard the voices, she saw the light.
She whispered good-bye, she knew not to fight.

"She is back, she has a pulse". She heard them say.
Please no more shock therapy, her thoughts did pray.

She screamed inside, for she was back in hell.
Left to rot once more in her padded cell.

Excellent. Loved it. Dig the big turn around at the end. Could be a metaphor for the way we can open into the limitlessness of our inner-space then we wake up and are confronted by the harsh realitites of the material world. A world gone mad. Indeed. I can relate.

Nice way of saying not all madness is dark and not all realities are "light"...

This is... unsettling. I can't divine if it's imagined or real.

The poem started with beauty and ended with pain and turmoil. I like the way you led me into thoughts then pain. A very strong ending to a outstanding poem.
