snow 2 feet high
My legs brittle from the cold wind
As I left the door open for you
My body shivers from the frostbite
My soul dampened and darkened from the
suicidal attempts at prayer that you'd return
I prayed for your return
and I nearly froze to death
so It's time to close the door.
I waited so long,
for you to come in
but the pain in my bones
and the damage done to my body
knowing that I can no longer hold a grip
on the societal reality of life
knowing that Our love is as dead
as I almost have become
I can see now,
that you aren't coming
and its time to close the door.
I waited so long for you to say those words
"Honey, I'm Home, I love you, how was your day?"
but they never came.
I put some hot water on the stove
as I watched you walk away that morning,
sitting down at the table
leaving the door open for your return
but my bones are brittle
my heart is frozen
I cannot live with you
You've seen to that
and I cannot live without you
My hearts seen to that
but, I will try my best.
If I have any hope of survival,
It's time to close the door to my heart before I lose all feeling.
