Guest Poet: M. Hoffman (a.k.a. Wookiesgirl) ~ Locked Door

 Thank you, Wookiesgirl, for guest posting today for National Poetry Month! Enjoy! :)

 

 

 

 

Locked Door

A glittering halo

Once surrounded me

Bright and forgiving

Now gone

Bent and broken

Blackened by reality

Part of my heart died

The consequence of letting you go

Vast emptiness

Stark and cold

Deep inside

I stand alone

Broken

The door is closed

The lock engaged

And still

Love and compassion remains

You are

And always will be

Mine

My heart

My breath…

Mine eternally

When I dream

I see you and feel you

Our souls coalesce

As they’ve always done

Then I wake

So far from you

So far from where we once were

Consumed by the ache

Existing half alive

Knowing all is as it should be

The evidence of you

Is stamped upon my soul

Alone

Missing you

Behind my locked door

M. Hoffman is many things in life: a mother, a wife, and a corporate VP. Less than two years ago, she added “writer” to the list. She was told she had a strong voice, and that she should explore it more. Reluctantly, she did. What’s come from inside her mind since then is over one hundred poems, as well as several blog posts. She found a muse and he assumes many forms; sometimes he manifests from past personal experiences, and sometimes he’s in the music she listens to.

Wookiesgirl says, ” I’ve fallen in love with writing. It’s my outlet and my obsession.”

  2. You know, I thought I liked this yesterday. Then I realized I didn’t because I didn’t know how to log in to do it LOL. Loved this piece. Very heartfelt and real.

  3. “…When I dream
    I see you and feel you
    Our souls coalesce
    As they’ve always done
    Then I wake
    So far from you
    So far from where we once were…”

    These lines resonate with me the most because my WIP plays with concept of reality is perception: if my dreams are more real to me than real life, would it be so bad to live in those dreams? Especially when there’s nothing but heartache and loss in the “real world?”

    Another lovely poem, my dear…Happy Writing to you! XO
