Poem: Yearning for a Chance

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

"Yearning For A Chance"

Tormented with his past
opening only closed doors,
living within secrets
no one can decipher,
wanting to walk a different path.

Yearning for a chance
to fill his empty heart,
hoping he is the man
her heart aches for on lonely nights.

Walking in the door she left ajar
he feels his shadow disappear,
realizing tomorrow is a new beginning
for his tired heart.

He feels a closeness
as he holds her tight
hoping he can break free,
letting him take the chance
to travel the road he missed.
