Keyhole of Light

Dark and weathered you feel confused
I knock on your heart but you won't let me through
If privacy is granted you won't see the light
I can still see a keyhole don't give up the fight
It pains me to see you without a window of hope
I can't handle the nails that drive your slate home
Lets restore your foundation and give it new life
Veneer will protect you I will find the best knight
The lock is against us please give me the key
I beg you I love you please listen to me.

I am late to find is gem but the fine pleasure in reading this poem is still the same. I know about begging to be allowed to help someone I loved. She was addicted to drugs and I was not allowed in to help. Love this plea and its depth and beauty. A fav..

The analogy of the locked house is apt and well-chosen, to express the sentiments of your poem. How often do we plead with those we care for to open up? Too often, I fear, and we are all guilty of isolating ourselves. 'I can't stand the nails that drive your slate home' is my favourite line, though the whole poem is very good.

This keyhole of light reminds me of a Greek myth - Two lovers that can only connect looking through a crack in the rock. Good stuff. Love, daver
