Golden Key or Skeleton Key

You’ve been given a key that can open one building, room, locker, or box to which you don’t normally have access. How do you use it, and why?

Skeleton Key
By emschierbeek

That black box you call a soul
Among the cobwebs and the dark
Hides not a treasure but a key
For that is the real treasure
A golden key
A skeleton key
For that is both its shape and purpose
Fitted specially to one lock
Ornate and unused
Bored it sits and waits
The time for collection has arrived
Always I feel its weight on my mind
Now time has come to feel it in my hand
Opening my own tortured soul
I seek its partner
Forged in the same vile mold
The one to free it from its cluttered tomb
But how can I get to your key
If I cannot get to mine?
