Sentry

Someone hurt you
so you placed a sentry
at the door to your heart.

But the sentry let me in and learned to love
so you put a locked gate
in front of the sentry
at the door to your heart

But I found the key and the gate was flung open
so you dug a trench
around the gate
in front of the sentry
at the door to your heart

But I flooded the trench to swim across to you
so you took it all and buried it
at the bottom of a dark deep hole

The empty trench
around the rusty gate
in front of the lonely sentry
at the door to your heart

So you would never feel hurt again

 

Day 3: Didn’t follow the prompt for today. This just needed to be said …
