A Closed Door

The silent tears that nobody saw cry
As deep within a soul just wished to die
Unspoken the words that voiced so much pain
Of a heart broken again and again
Self-loathing thoughts can never be said
When no feelings remain to be confessed
How can the hidden truth ever be expressed
When the heart wishes that its own soul were dead
But to die would be to surrender all
Without taking a chance; making that call
Never daring to open that closed door
Free from behind the self-made prison wall
To reach for the dreams that echoed before
And showed you that life could be so much more

About Jez Farmer

I am a freelance writer and poet and started writing after raising my two boys as a way of discovering just who Jez is. That is still very much an on-going project but the journey so far has introduced me to many wonderful friends and fellow writers through an ever growing love of poetry.
