The Door

By the time I write this

it will be history.

No longer

some great mystery.

Everyone thought

I had tried my best.

But I failed

my most important test.

What they think

will no longer matter.

Now that

my life is in tatters.

Alone for good,

just an empty space

where you once stood.

I drove you

to the brink

of exhaustion.

Until eventually

you gave way to caution.

Packed up

your things and

told me no more.

Put on your coat

and walked out the door.

  1. Knock knock. Who’s there? A blast from the past. A ghost in a shell? Quick.. think fast!
