April Poem 18: Portals

Behind closed doors
Sweet words turn to acid

Behind closed doors
She forgets “I love you.”

I know i need her forgiveness
I know I have erred in the past

But still I see that her
Her only love is me

And my love will stay on
‘Till the last

In public she clings to my arm
As if it will save her from harm

But behind closed doors
She forgets the hours
I’ve toiled to give her all my best
Time and time I’ve been put to the test

I toy with the ring on my finger
As if lost in the ocean or sand
But I remember my words
When I said “I love you”
I know if I’ll do what I can
She won’t leave the warm touch of my hand
