doors

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

recoil

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

lurking

beyond the

wall

 

i ask you to save me

and you ask in return

how?

 

well darling

i think

dealing with

those demons

is

a good start
