you open your door


only for me

to stare

at mine

closed shut

against the world


i place my hand upon

the knob

twist but

do not dare

to push open


let it


that is all

i’ve ever done


i slam

a lock

upon its

restless self

not tonight

i tell myself

not yet time for me

to open up


cringe-worthy cries

and shattering shrieks

i still hear

the demons


beyond the



i ask you to save me

and you ask in return



well darling

i think

dealing with

those demons


a good start
