Locked Door



thoughts scurry under
naked eyelids –
giving birth
to imaginary faces
hiding in candlelight –
held firmly
yet lacking

P. Wanken


Inspired by The Sunday Whirl #96: under, naked, scurries, birth, imaginary, hiding, door, faces, root, candlelight, lack, and held.



    1. Thanks, Sara. I’m glad you liked it. It was one of those poems that, after I finished writing it, I reread it and “liked it” myself! 😉 Thanks for the specific feedback on the ending. Greatly appreciated.


    1. I liked the words, too…they bounced around inside my head a few days before I knew how they were going to land. They nearly landed on their own–just an extra six had to be added. 😉
