For Richard Lamoureux's "Any line" contest.  

Richard Seale-d Door's line:  slammed shut are the doors in "A mind made up".

You told me before
slammed shut are the doors
when my love for you went astray
I got my comeuppance
he's worth not a tuppence
and rumor has it he's gay

Lest I've need of another  
visit to me brother
sometime for a quick howdy-do
or longing for discourse
in code as of Morse
on the stealth oiled a hinge, p'haps two

Ah, found me a crack
Leech-a is back 
my love for the other's dissipated 
you smile goodly, warmly
longingly, lovingly
my return welcome and anticipated

    Hello Delysia, For some reason the first visuals that came to my mind were of a bad relationship. An excellent piece to go with Richard's line. I can't seem to stop reading your poem. I honestly read it 3 times. Made a lot of sense out of something you picked from one fine line. awesome, and thanks so much for being the lovely poet you are... Good Luck In the contest... Linda

    Hi Sis, I am honoured you've chosen one of my lines for this contest.You did tell me you'd steal one sooner or later lol. You should have taken my advice. Yes, I told you before, To slam that door, And tell him to be on his way, He was no good for you, See my words were true, Likes your parting shot, rumour he’s gay. Good luck in the contest Licia. Take care, Richard
