Open Up - Poem by Ricky Rogito

Upon a firm shut door
I eagerly knock and knock
I pray, plead and implore
A passive heart to unlock

Yet the souls imposing portal
Offers no notable response
Not a stir, a hush nor a rustle
Just a cold emphatic repulse

Is it stigma or aversion
That a soul does scare
From returning affection
Offered in earnest care

Forlorn captivated heart
Fettered by conventions
Do cut loose and exert
Free will, and true emotions

Fall to the depths of love
Rise to our greatest prime
Blessed of the Lord above
Live to the zenith of our time

Pray do open your heart
In faith boldly step forth
Set two souls into one part
Sincerely I plight my troth.
