Challenging and painful and brave. Thank you.
Thanks for saying so!Pamela
I agree with Sandy. This is definitely a door that one must have courage to walk through.http://troublebeingstrong.blogspot.com/2010/06/unlock-door.html
Diane indeed it is!Thanks for commenting.Pamela
A greek play, mask and robe and flowing veil. The pain inside can be behind any mask. I like: put forth some integrity. That's advice you don't have to give yourself.
Barb, I like what you got from this poemI almost was getting the feeling that some people thought of it as an autobiography which it is not of course!Pamela
The door of histeria and joy.... I love this combination. Well done.Heartspell
I like the positive message here!sky as the canvas of my thoughts
GautamiI am glad u found it! Thanks for that!Pamela
Pamela, I was glad to read in the comments that this is not autobiographical. I had wondered. You wrote about the subject from within though, as if you truly knew. What I think about most at the moment is combining hysteria with joy. At first it seemed an improbably combination, but the more I thought about it........ Nice work!
Thanks Mary! there is a depth to which I feel I can touch here but nothing morePamela
Wow...Well done Pamela. I am impressed. Sad and powerful words you weave here!
Thanks Brenda ;) always enjoy you stopping by!Pamela
It's not an easy thing to write about that final and most challenging of passages, but you did it well.
Thanks Francis do not know why but this just seemed like it worked well. Pamela
Yep -- tragedy and comedy. Yin and Yang. But, I did have a fleeting thought...and said, "nah." Good stuff!
Thanks Linda I am glad your thought decided not to stick around ;)Pamela
So compact, such impact - that's one strong door!
Thanks Paul! and thanks for commenting!Pamela
Very powerful for so very few words. Excellent Pamela!
NeilThanks for saying so I really enjoyed this prompt!Pamela
The door that so many of us are afraid to walk through. I love how you weaved in the concept of theatre, called to the stage by circumstance. What masks we done depends on us. Well done.-Nicole
Thanks Nicole I always appreciate your commenting on my poems!Pamela
Such bravery in throwing open that door. I like that it was widdled down to so few words, all working together easily to get the feeling across.- Dina

doors can be hard to open...and easy to close also...anyways well done Pam
