Sterling Skeleton Key

What do you See? March 5, 2019


Fair fantasy, copper’d swirl of locks

Bronze satin dress fastened with

Ivory floral mysteries…her loveliness

Lures, but looks a warning:  are you

Certain you really want what I hold?

Have you fearlessness to accept this

Bright sterling skeleton key?

You don’t know what it opens…

If door, just where it leads.

Could be Life’s singular bonheur…or

Agony’s hell-trap, relentless Despair.

  1. Whatever and wherever trust and faith will lead me, if Hell, it will save me…☺
    A wonderful poem, two ententes.
