Door Steps ©SRose t. (Seasideauthor)

Continuance in fantasy?

One step, she lifts a foot;

Balance she seeks, gravity

learns, to live. Army afoot


with aid in sterile white;

to the coverings’ agony.

Rescue the betrayal blight

form sinks into atrophy.


Eruption sink coat daily                                                                                        

her frame in the mirror.

Thoughts pass, hazily

a memory disappears


of the once ‘stunning’ being.

Only half birthday ago

“She Was” only needing;

his love, her covering aglow.


Jovial interests only art,

poetry and careless dance.  

Affection was his only part,

her fault a circumstance.


The door she could not find.

In despair entangled in apogee

his help arrogantly blind.

Lacking the loving capacity


Or patience guide into reality.

Abandons her to life lonely

despair. He; her center of gravity.

Knowing he was her one and only.


A step at a time, step one, tread,

dressed in white & scrubs, allies                                                                          

rise, piloting gravity, new read.

Reach for her out of the skies.


Manages the lines, one at a time;

Guiding the pencil, led her step

by step. Long year quite a climb.

Turning a corner, her gullible rep


exasperates them still. Good deed

and gently try to erase her dearheart

from her core. Aim her to concede

he is material, only loves in part.


Someday she will find the exits.

Holding the keys, her heart wills

learn to eat to live. Into the edit

and back to reality. Loving quill


surfacing unable to keep it light.

Striving to start erasing a lout,

To stop whining in this plight?

Soon we’ll see a life all about!

    Sometimes we wander on parallel paths.. leading nowhere.. and that treadmill can seem without hope.. but road always cross later on.

    Oh, I do hope that she does find the exit and a way to happiness once again! I like how you used the picture!

    After the pain she suffers because of this hurtful relationship, your closing lines come as a relief.

    finding one’s own gravity when it was felt to revolve around another is hard. it’s easy to look in the mirror and see lies (whether of our own broken spirit or whether inflicted by the one who we thought was suppose to hold us perfect in their hearts)…find the way back can be hard…I hope she finds the key to unlock the truth and live life on her own terms full of her own love and health.

    very nicely written.

    Someday she will find the exits.
    Holding the keys, her heart wills

    Arising from pains experienced she is given to hopes for the future. Her heart is expected to be strong to face them. Wonderful word craft!
