I See A Red Door …

I See A Red Door …

 Red is for danger
 so beware
 You would enter
 this door,
 assuming you could even reach it,
 at your own risk
 

 If I were to let you in
 it would be by invitation only
 On my terms
 I would control your entry
 from the inside
 No coming and going 
 as you please
 

 I do not know you well
 and I no longer trust
 

 So be it

 Sanaa from A Dash of Sunny is hosting D'Verse Poets tonight
 and she has prompted us with minimalist photography using photos
 provided by fellow poet and photographer Glenn Butkus. Check out
 his amazing photos on the D'Verse page. I chose the Red Door for my poem
 

Deviate

Trucking along the road

Disregarding life’s load

Taking advantage of the free ride

Letting someone else be the guide

Never to deviate from the course

Using another as the centrifugal force

Having lost all sense of being

You are now merely sightseeing

A shadow of your former self

Resembling an object on a mantle shelf 

Used and abused with no voice

You have forgotten that you have a choice

Pave your own way out of that hell

All stigma attached you must dispel

You have the strength to be reborn

Heal the parts of you that are worn

Find yourself once more

Start walking to that door

On the other side is hope

A new life is not beyond your scope

Christine Bolton
