The Gateway

The gateway beckoned

the traveler knew its story well,

with promises of adventure,

the Sun’s rays worked to close the sale


On the other side,

a deep warmth dwelt,

offering whispers and caresses

of forgotten hurts, no longer felt


The traveler was wise though,

and did not heed

for the Siren’s lusty call

was full of lies and misdeeds


“I have been that way”

responded the soujorner

and turned back to

where the path was known and clear
