Lest you live as I would die

Lest you live as I would die

Hold the door

Its old hinges creak

Of lost time

They dare speak

Of slow walks in the moonlight

Of hope cloaked in sight

 

Hold the door

It tries to snap shut

Locking hurt

Deep within

Crushing rose petals that bloom

When sunlight drizzles

Hold the door

It closes in tight

Reducing

Space of love

The chest caves in under might

Pressure of sorrow

 

Hold the door

It cuts through answers

To Questions

Lost inking

Connection’s tendrils sinking

Communication

Hold the door

It would allow us

To glimpse light

Sea beyond

The nature of you and me

Sketched in wilderness

 

Hold the door

It is like coffin

Embalming

Pervading

Lest you live as I would die

Motionless, empty
