Silent Door... - Poem by DEEP DARK SOUL POET

As the silent door closed behind me
I knew I'd never return here again
The wind blew up and it hit me in the face
Such a sensation, sort of like pain

People walking down the street
Don't even acknowledge I am here
Should I just close my tired red eyes
And try and vanish, disappear?

Countless thoughts are washing
Churning in my mind so fast 
Too many to consider doing
Wishing there was a choice not so vast

Looking to the future waiting
Looking at the past regretting
Trying to change what was
Into what it could be I'm forgetting

Tomorrow is like an old friend
Always on the promise of good things
Today is like an old relationship
Full of potential but it always ends

Another night dawns on me
And I'm waking to the moon
Life takes it's toll and it's a lot
The time has come, and then it's gone

I've walked so far my legs are spent
There is more to me that I am meant
My feet are torn from this stony ground
And all I see is distance all around

This journey in time has me feeling old
in the middle of nowhere I'm tired and cold
There's still so much more to see
But night has set and I cannot see

Into my dreams I fall once again
Full of fear and endless pain
But I dread to wake to the present
I want to stay here where the nightmare is pleasant...
