The door of my dreams

door of my dreams

Often I dream of a door,

On the other side of which,

I believe lay my dreams and more,

That are always out of my reach.

Each time it is a different thing,

But it is always something that I long for.

The wishes and desires,

That I always hope would be true someday.

Sometimes it is a loved one,

Not gone forever, but still with me.

Sometimes it is those friendships,

That I thought were lost.

Often it is the solitude I seek,

The peace amidst the chaos of everyday,

Those beautiful places where I wish to be,

That time when everything is alright.

Sometimes it is all the things,

That I want to be, but I’m not.

And at times it is everything I can be,

But I’ve never tried enough.

I’ve always wondered what lay beyond,

When I see the door of my dreams,

But I now look at it for real,

I tell myself it is just a dream. 

And now, I stand here,

Wondering if I should knock,

What lays beyond I wonder,

Should I stay or walk?

I wonder if it is a trap,

For I’m afraid of things going wrong.

Will the door ever open I wonder,

Oh maybe I must find a key.

    Reema, what can I say? Your poem is so beautiful and moving! I could relate to it as if it were my own story. You are so good at poetry…and you know you inspire me to keep at it even when I think I’m no good at it. I will join in this week. I LOVE the prompt and it will be a shame if I let it go by without writing a poem on it. Will join before the weekend gets over, for sure.

    Thanks for linking up with us for #wordlesswednesday this week. See you again. 🙂
    Have a lovely weekend, Reema.
