Door

I am a door,
a vessel
that floats on shore,
open or closed
my heart is soul
and I have ancient eyes
that see
despite the clouds,
the shroud of minds.
I am a door
a vessel
on an open shore.

I am a leaf
from the book of life,
the way my body twists
is the key that I became,
seeking a room
a place to be.
I am knowledge,
yet still so ignoran,
I am the curve
that leans and learns
and turns the lock.

I dwell at the end of corridors,
the one painted blue
the other
unvarnished
the bareness true.
I am the load
divested
at the end of the day
I am reached
in the impenetrable
gloam.

I really enjoyed this, it is so thought provoking and possibly introspective. There is just something that I really liked about the final stanza,maybe it's the perceived finality of the last two lines. .
