The Door and the Darkness

There is a black door between us…

the door laughs at me, and it cries at you

but it can never’s fixed forever locked at the will of a 1 year old

a manifestation of everything I ever did wrongs
a new hope and salvation away from my wrongs

I know you’re there, my heart is a compass,
that will forever point to you, my true north

even as your memories drag me south

I don’t need eyes to see you or ears to hear you

our connection transfixes dimensions and human boundaries

I feel you and you me

we connect to each other in a spiritual realm only we can enter

there I can hold you once more
I embrace you like I never left

you grace me with your sugar kisses

it’s 15 years ago in our first apartment
every night

there I die, with our kids, every night

like a fairy tale in reverse without an end
I know we both do this...we were meant to hurt like this

we were murderous in our past life and
now we pay karma in this life

it’s why we met
to pay
the messenger told us both

only when both wake together or die apart will we know this truth

we are half of each other and fixed in a circle

walking the same ground, going over the same steps

we both try but cannot move forward...

we can’t escape the past, the door won’t open
It laughs and it cries and the child innocently holds the darkness

every time your sorrows escape your beauty,
It stains my pillow no matter how far apart we are

distance is an illusion, imaginary conclusion…

Baby, we are not in a delusion...this is really happening

there, the both of us, with our kids, every night perish

I’m pushing up your daisies again
