An Observation on Doors
Im standing in a doorway but its locked, laced with iron grillework, admitting light but revealing nothing to the world without. Although I think I was invited my light knock remains unanswered. I have lived all this before and have arrived at some conclusions
There are those who think in false nobility by throwing bolts and turning keys they do protect the world from what they harbor, those trunks packed full with bloody linens printed with the record of their lives. But I have learned that what theyre really doing is safeguarding their own frailties from the harsh incursions of the world, and while a part of them may long to hear a message that might lighten dark seclusion, when the messenger arrives the words are silenced.
So now, before another door, no welcome mat awaiting, I shall as I have done before leave my small parcels to be found, perhaps opened, perhaps not, and then discarded. It is a choice and never mine, but I have bloodied knuckles knocking in the past and never will again. 2013 RC deWinter
