Locked Door

old very rusty ancient heavy door

cobwebs galore stuck to the keyhole

looks like someone has entered it

new strong shiny lock attached

being inquisitive

pulling the closed catch

something touched me

from behind

I screamed




legs tremble

arm grabs me tight

trembling violently

gasping for air in lungs

the stranger said caught you out

do not sneak around old buildings

next time you may not be so lucky

I’m a person that won’t harm anyone

If you would like to see inside of here

I have the new key in my pocket

would you like to have a look now

just going to have a ride

when I saw you walking

around the corner,

feeling settled

shaking gone

now some

    • Thanks, yes, I was a little stuck as to where to take the poem at that stage it could have gone another way, but that would have taken the form another ten lines and I didn’t want to do that.
      Appreciate your comment, have a great day.

      • well it still had awesome flow and maybe even more interest because of that “different” part – and that keeps writing fresh. really liked learning about this and seeing how you do this 🙂
