Behind the Door

The door is kept shut
Locked
The key hidden safely
Under time’s fallen leaves
It only opens briefly
Flickering moments
Like a deep breath reminder
That life exists outside

Inside
Dreams fill the air
A perfume rich and heady
But still
Only dreams
Vapors of the mind
A fantasy
Of imaginary existence

And if dreams became reality
Would I still dream of them?
Or push them away
As if they were something
Fun to think about
But not what I wanted
Not really
Only a veil
Woven of daydreams

For NaPoWriMo 2013 day 2 and dVerse Open Link Night #90.

    • Thank you. Like the Rolling Stones said: “You can’t always get what you want..”, and sometimes that turns out to be a good thing in the end. Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
