The Locked Door
© June 1983, Roy Stucky

Content in the dark of my monastery,
Dreaming, solitary -
Then the sun came disguised
As a charmed missionary.

Where is the peace of the locked door?
Suddenly I must have more.

You came to subdue.
I tried not to love you.
Now I can't shut out the view.

Where is the peace of the locked door?
Suddenly I must have more.

After a kiss you disappear
Taking along my atmosphere.
Why did you interfere?

Where is the peace of the locked door?
Suddenly I must have more.

My walls are now a wreck
And I cannot forget
The memory I'd like to regret.

Awakened by the dawn
Now I'm exposed
Under a sudden sunset.

Your sun set.

Where is the peace of the locked door?
I look back on what I was before.
Is this my chance to soar?
Suddenly, I must have more.
