Behind the Elevator #poetry #photography


hall

Beckoned to the mystery

something I might dread

there has to be something

behind the hallway of my head

my finger shudders, lingers

on THE button slowly now

once I press it “Open”

“Close” may not be allowed

my hand makes the decision

reason swirls with dismay

one thing I can tell you

I’ll never be the same

If I told you what I found there

you’d be in a tangle too

but I signed a special paper

you’ll wish in part you knew

the question now arises

where am I am I not

if you knew the answer

you’d stand to lose alot

Wishing all the Poet’s United folks a happy Wednesday and Happy Thanksgiving (for those who are celebrating) and thanks Sumana for the prompt “Hyperbole.”

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing with an E. African team that is developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.

  2. Isn’t that the fear of every “open sesame’? ANd then we cover for what may be nothing, or may be too scarey to share, especially if its nothing. Wow.

  3. It is not in mankind’s nature to accept what is; for there is a constant search for something different. This is both our achievement and our failure which your last two lines confirm.

  5. Hmmm, the hardest choices we have to make are the ones that involve no choice at all (once I press it “Open”“Close” may not be allowed). A little kafkaesque and it had me feeling uncomfortable, but after all it is a hyperbole… 🙂
