The Forgotten Key


It was quite some time ago that
I chained and locked the door.
Beyond its jam lay memories
I'd rather forget... and more.

I took the key that locks the lock
and tossed it to the sea.
"No one will ever find it.
No one will again hurt me."

The time has lapsed by quickly
No one has bothered the door.
But the changes on the inside
I’ve never seen before.

"I need not key or crowbar,"
I heard a whisper say,
"for with the stormy weather
the wood has rot away."

"Forget the key that binds you.
The chain has fallen away.
My love's released the darkness
and revealed the light of day."
