Defining the boundary
Between this and that place

It's pretty clear that I'm
An open-and-shut case

Sometimes a metaphor
For opportunity

I could be vital to
Your exit strategy

To a single axis
My movement is confined

Your privacy is that
For which I've been designed

What am I?

Answer:

a door


lines 1-2: A door divides a room from another room or hallway, etc.

lines 3-4: A play on words using one of a door's characteristics, namely that it opens and closes (or shuts).

lines 5-6: The word "door" may be used metaphorically to describe a means through which new possibilities may be realized.

lines 7-8: One may need to pass through a door in order to leave a room or building.

lines 9-10: A door usually swings on hinges.

lines 11-12: One of the functions of a door is to maintain one's privacy by having it closed.
