A Secret Door

I own an upscale Jewelry store Exquisite gems on the third floor But on the fourth, I did explore A secret door A secret door Once, I turned the key in the lock I opened it, without a knock There was a wall of cinder block It was a shock It was a shock No one has guessed my nom de plume so when a client starts to fume I take my leave and quickly zoom To the back room To the back room For fast escapes from my affairs or when my makeup needs repairs I rise a flight, by way of stairs I leap in pairs I leap in pairs What good's a door that goes nowhere? Don't ask if you really don't care. Only I know what's hidden there I will not share I will not share *A Monotetra

It's called Monotetra, and I like that it places emphasis on the 4th line of each verse. Thanks for liking it, too, Jennifer.

Thanks ever so much, John. I appreciate your wonderful synonyms, but doubt I'll place in this contest. It was just a fun adventure to nowhere.

We should all have a secret door on the fourth floor to look for when we need to restore our sanity or repair our vanity (makeup). I have not seen this form before, I must try it sometime, well done. Best of luck in the contest, Jenna. Hugs, John
