I just picture her standing on the front porch of a house out in the country somewhere. She's starting to freeze but refuses to believe that he no longer loves her. It's a very sad story, I think...

key to your heart

Somehow feeling so sure
In the snow here I stand
Knocking on your locked door
With the key in my hand

But the door is locked tightly
To the past which remains
Only inside my heart
Filled with disdain

I am holding the key
Tight in my fist
Never forgetting those
Moments of bliss

I knew you so well
Through memories shared
I could open your heart
And prove that I cared

How could you let go
And leave me locked out
You’ve changed all the locks
Without hearing me shout

And I’m left here to cry
For I cannot come in
It’s getting too cold
As the evening grows dim

Clutching onto the past
I stand here and weep
Looking down at your key
That I had sworn to keep

But I still keep on knocking
Scared of being alone
I am getting so cold
Can’t believe that you’re gone

As I stand on your threshold
The wind cuts like a dart
Clutching the key
That once opened your heart

  This had a lot of emotion and you could definately feel that, it felt raw. I feel as if I am the girl left standing there .. feeling empty .. with nothing. So if that was what you wanted to create it worked so well. Great work, keep it up.

  I like the way you allow your emotion to flow through this poem. The rhyme was on the edge briefly. A very romantic scene is viewed in this one. I liked it.

  wow. i loved the scheme and meter. i felt as if i was standing beside, with a cool wintry wind blowing through my hair. i felt quite anxious.

i thought this line was about as perfect as a rhyme could get. very nice post.

  Although you lost the rhyme scheme in the fourth and sixth stanzas this was overall a great poem. It was a pleasure to read. Much love.
