Down a long corridor
Lined with shiny, white locked doors
Only I hold the key
The contents are not yours
The passageway, long and bright
Each door, I might
Unlock and walk in
Let my mind wandering begin
Take a stroll down the hall

This poem is great. It has a good thought at its core, it's mysterious at parts, and it's not typical of what a person would generally write of daydreams. I especially like how the last line ends the poem by beginning something else.

This is a nice, simple poem.  The imagery is good and I like the metaphor of the locked doors. :)

This is really cool. I love the images it creates and how it says so much without being very long :)

Everything about this poem is AWESOME. I'm not sure why, but it is.
