Shaman - Horse

Poem - Never Barred

“Never Barred” was inspired by a line found in Stephen King’s book, “It”.


Never Barred

Places like this are never locked
vaults wide enough to swallow hope
allow passage to depths within
halls with pits in shadow's gloom

while the bolt is disengaged
interlopers may come and play
there they’ll find the evil joke
sadness wound around the truth

there’s no need to run away
the door swings wide all the day
still the path is not the same
the outward hidden, the inward plain

yet this is the glamor’s lie
darkest lights deny the mind
revealing all, while hiding same
places like this are never barred.
