ONCE UPON A DREAM; When Love Came Knocking

Photo from; http://moonlightrainbow.tumblr.com/post/12730054419

When Love came knocking 
Tap-tapping on my door
I refused to answer 
I could take no more

When Love called through the letter box
"Let me in, let me in"
I just covered my ears 
And silenced the din

When Love whispered softly
"Remember me;
Remember me"
My eyes misted over and I could not see

When Love said plainly
"You can trust me; I am here"
I was afraid of the fall 
And I did not hear

When Love pleaded gently
"I understand your fear"
I wept in silence
Too scared to be held dear

When Love grew frustrated
And stomped away down the path
I knew I was right
To avoid such wrath!

But when Love was long gone
Oh what a fool I had been!
For I miss keyhole whispers
I hear his voice in my dreams

So I await his return
Be Love near now, or far
In the lost space I must learn...
...To leave the door slightly ajar.

I saw this picture above, of a beautiful fairytale door and I simply had to write a poem to tell it's story. Enjoy!
