The Closed Door

A knock!
On the closed door…

Beyond midnight
Into the darkness
With zero visibility

Empty rooms behind
With only the silent flames
Of a single hope, 

The desperate melodies
Of basic instincts
And the eternal quest…

A knock
On the closed door…

Confusion all around
With temperature under zero
Frozen soul, transfixed

Fragments of faiths
Weak and feeble, without
Any particular destiny

Night after night
A knock on the closed door
A knock, punctual. And loyal…
