All stories have an end.

This is mine.

I live behind this door.

No one visits.

As footsteps draw near,

I look out the peephole.

I never answer the bell.

I slink away into my dungeon

of lost hopes and dreams.

Neighbors stay away.

Family doesn’t care.

Would you?

      I found the picture on tumblr and began to think about why someone would post such a sign on their door. There are people who are afraid to leave home. Life becomes too hard for them. They tend to be forgotten, while the happy and content take all our attention. That’s human nature.

        Yes, that’s a harsh truth …

        We tend to forget about the sadness in the world. Some of it right next door to us.
