Knocking at the Doors


You are the same through space and through time
The most beautiful of things I believe to be thine,
But how is it you are so far away from me?

    Thank you for the comments everyone. It's interesting to receive feedback from people I've never met before. It somehow seems more... truthful. To set the record straight. I am still knocking, haven't been let in yet. However, that's fine. Im cool with it. I very much appreciate the positive comments. Its all a writer wants to hear really. That people got what he was trying to say. (Report) Reply

    Verrrry good :) For an amateur poet, you pay great attention to structure. In terms of constructive criticism: paying attention to meter and rhyme is often a good way to improve on an otherwise brilliant poem. Keep up the good work! (Report) Reply

    You're the same through space and time.
    It's good, Gabe! Although knocking can get mundane, don't stop believing. (Report) Reply

    So I will keep knocking till the end of time,
    Till my own heart within yours resides,
    Till I'm so close that I feel you within,
    Till the two that are twain, become one person.
    a touching write (Report) Reply

    'Forever on the outside while inside I still yearn.'....This line really touched me. Over all, this is a lovely poem on love. If the situation described is autobiographical, I only hope that it catches the attention of your target audience and motivate her to keep her doors ajar. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
