A reflection on the reason I am alone.



Do not enter

It is my job to say

And I take my job seriously


I am the gatekeeper


It is a lonely task

One I took upon myself

For reasons that

I am yet to understand


But I know

I need to be the gatekeeper


Some have tried

Many I have scared away

Successful in my job


I am the gatekeeper


Doomed to a life in solitude

I weep alone

For I am the only person to open the gate

But it remains closed


I am the gatekeeper


And there behind the walls I build

And the heavy gate I guard

Lies in a small iron box

My scared lonely heart
