Secret Room - Poem by C.J. Heck

A little room within my heart
has a door that wears a star
with a weathered name emblazoned there.
This is where you are.

It's not a large room, tucked away,
but where my soul can see
just where it is in case I need
a precious memory.

The door is safely closed now
for a time that's yet to come,
but when and if it does,
the door will melt away, my love.

    Nice, though not innovative nor inventive nor original imagery. Jerked at the chords of my mindsoul. Brims over with feeling. Nice!

    Nice to see another rhyming poet here. There don't seem to be many of us. I like this very much, C.J. Beautiful in its intended simplicity. Very straightforward. (Report) Reply
