Broken Door

This one small door I left closed to you
you broke down and entered through
a trust betrayed, no treasures found
but a small bit of me crushed in the ground
no jewels, no gold, no fine cut glass
just a part of myself is all I ask
to keep unshared; this my own
but even this you couldn't leave alone
my shelter gone, my heart in distress
you broke in here and left me comfortless
if one small part of myself cannot be my own
that prying eyes will not leave alone
this place now is yours; I leave you here
I've gone away someplace, elsewhere
no more will I be here; my heart to race
or my eyes to rest on your sweet face
I'm gone... I'm gone to another place
