I dream about you at night – 

about your secrets and treasures and lies 

I spy on you, I plan. 


The day I touched you,

caressed you, probed you the very first time –

the overwhelming desire to posses you  

has consumed my mind.

You act as nothing happened, unmoved 

hiding behind walls and locks.

Your silence mocking my efforts –

no squeak, no creak, not even whine

to my desperate break-in tries. 

My knees are chaffed, my fingers bleed

Oh how I wish to know where is your key. 



Phew…I was really struggling with this one.

    Didn’t seem like a struggle at all-except trying to get in that drawer!!

    I loved the metaphor of the key. Well done. Just checking in from the AtoZ. Are you joining in the fun this year? Hope so.
