A watchful eye
lingers in your
corner, dwelling
upon the essence
of your elegance.

Oh lustrous deity,
a fear encompasses
my weary heart,
a fear that you will
distance yourself
from my open door.

So swiftly does the
wind blow it shut,
forever blinding me;
no longer may I
behold thy beauty.

-Brian Shuffett

For once I would like to see something become what I wish it were to be. How egotistical of me, yes! However, is it so wrong to wish for companionship, to have someone there by your side? My heart is not so black that it merits an eternity of solitude.

Man's reach exceeds his grasp.
-Nikola Tesla

Tonight my head is full of wishes
and everything I drink is full of her.
-Katatonia; Tonight's Music

I don't use this word/phrase much but, I see a little de ja vu in the part where it talks about how swiftly the wind blows wide open doors shut, and how painstaking that can be when it happens, when someone feels they're not welcome within them, when in fact [they are].

I thank you for sharing this poem. It's worded simplisticly and know were this is coming from.

I am accepting this to the Group!
