The Door

Welcome to day 25, dear reader. I hope you have enjoyed #OctPoWriMo so far. Today's prompt is 'The door goes both ways', and the suggested form is a triquain. In it's simplest form, a triquain is a non-rhyming poem made of 7 lines. The syllable count is 3,6,9,12,9,6,3. I wrote mine this way. My goal was to add a bit of spookiness, or mysteriousness to my words. I hope I succeeded.

An open
door may not lead to that
place you expected. But rather it
is simply a mirror unto itself, taking
you right back to where you were trying
to escape from. It might
never close.
