This came from an image in my head, of a room through a keyhole.

The sentences can be interpreted differently depending on where you choose to pause. The meaning I had in mind while actually writing, was not to ask ‘dangerous’ questions if you’re not sure of the answer. Only if you know it will be yes!


Through the Keyhole

Through the keyhole, lies
Another mystery, locked inside
Obscure dreams and things we fail to see.

Harmless inquisition, injures only all
Seekers of knowledge, hearts
Into darkness swift may fall.

Sealed is the keyhole,
Extinguish kindled hope,
And NEVER knock,
On closed doors…
(Unless by chance)

 …You have the key.

Doors are closed for a reason...and the person on the otherside,,,looking in might be intruding some privacy...and oh boy that could have devistating results!!

Love it! I learned a long time ago, never ask a question whose answer might hurt you. I learned it, but I never learned how to follow my own advice. ~ Sara
