Keyhole- Secrets of You

by Maple Tree   Nov 16, 2020

Your silence
is killing tiny
specs of my soul.

Every time I knock on the door
hearing you breathe, visioning
eyelashes as long as I can remember
mating with tears of forgotten yesterdays.

Its enough for me to walk away
and yet I'm peeking through the crack
of the keyhole.

I send music and hellos
as often as a call girl flirts with John-
and it makes
me feel less than I truly am.

You have burrowed like a rabbit
for the last time- I dont have the key
to unlock the secrets of you.

    A genuinely touching write, Maple. I am so sorry you feel such pain, but selfishly grateful for the art you so frequently turn it in to.

    Take care, and stay well.

    Andrea, this is a perfect blend of pain and love. It's hard to walk away, leaving ones heart to slow and fade. . .
    Its hard to hurt all the time - sometimes the one to love is, you! xx
