Picture It & Write


http://ermiliablog.wordpress.compictureitandwrite2copy-1key to my heart

Do you hold the key

To the mystery in the sea?

Can you see deep within

The color of my skin?

Can you read the ball

Tell futures on the wall?

Do you know where I have been

Do you know my past sin?

Can you see within my heart

Did you think we’d  ever part?

Can I look into your eyes

Can I see all of your lies?

Can you feel the hurt inside

That I try so hard to hide?

Do you sense the void I feel

As you drive behind the wheel?

Do you remember the last time

When we went out to dine?

Do you remember when you said

I would be the only one in your bed?

Can you see my hidden tears

Do you sense all my fears?

Do you remember when we said

Our vows when we thee wed?

I can no longer hold on

I want and need you gone.

I take back the key you hold

I must break it in two-fold.

The key which  kept us as two

And  has now come unglued.

A shattered heart I feel

The layers you have peeled.

Please go a way and do not look

I know that now you took and took.

In time I know I will heal thine heart

But first we must become a part.

The key I hold in my hand

I buried it deep within the sand.

  1. So beautiful. I love the constant questions. The needs for answers. The final line was powerful. No longer will that key open the vulnerable part of oneself (at least that’s how I interpreted it). Fantastic poetry! Thanks for contributing. Splendid!

  2. Yes, a lot of questions … I don’t know if we need on all questions we have. I think that we need some open questions in our life – to know the answer for everything seems a bit boring. Lovely piece again. And as you said in the poem .. some keys should be buried.
