I've always resented that about you,

the way you let sentences

taper off...

just stop right in the middle of a...

and leave me hanging

wondering

what was going through your mind

that you so suddenly decided

I couldn't hear

couldn't understand

and I never will

because you won't open the door

and the key under the doormat

doesn't open your mind

it just unlocks the bathroom window

so I'll use it in the case of an

emergency

but I'll never know

what you want from me

if you never let me in.
