Gate to My Heart

August 8, 2009
Creak, squeak
The rusty gate utters
A melody that's unique
And filled with silent prayers.

Releasing squeals of joy
When someone enters,
Emitting moans of woe
As someone departs.

Rusted from continuous tears,
Almost falling apart
As love disappears,
That is the gate to my heart.

I appreciate your comment so much- thanks!

Bleh--I know. I was a very "new" writer that didn't apply the #1 rule "show don't tell" at that time. I would get rid of that author's comment...if I could.

Thanks again!

I may not write more poetry but I'll certianly keep writing! Thanks for the encouragement. :-D

This poem is so beautiful! It deserves an amazing comment, but I just can't think of any other word but beautiful, and yet that doesn't even come close to describing how it truly has touched my own heart.

Thanks so much guys for your awesome comments, they really raise my heart up. I had always stunk at poetry and since this poem was my first ever poem, I thought that it wouldn't be good at all, but surprisingly tons of people like it. All I did was write my emotions on paper and it became a poem just like that. Thanks again!!

I read this after posting a comment of my own, and I just had to say that you definitely don't stink at poetry, and if this is considered "stinking" (lol) at poetry...then I love poetry that stinks...ok, that was all just funny sounding...anyways, wonderful work! You are an amazing poet!
