“Doors Close” poem by Vera Zoey Armentrout

Vera Zoey Armentrout

I sit deep in thought,

About how those doors close,

About all that I was taught,

And how she’s holding a rose.


Finally I rose to hear the news,

Dad comes in the room,

To tell me that a door will close,

And she has met her doom.


The ultimate feelings of despair,

I begin to sit and think,

And start to tear out my hair,

I can no longer blink.


It’s not fair,

Seeing her there,

Nothing but a glare,

I can’t help but stare.
