doors

I'm lying here in the dark
eyes shut
wanting to sleep
overdose caffeine
my mind is racing
I'm seeing pictures of us
I see you
am tying to make out yor face
so i can just touch it...
but it's black, a shadow
come to think of it
I never saw your face...
...in dreams.
Tell me, what does that mean?

I remember our last day together
I wanted to say...
...those three words...
but I just hugged you
and said goodbye.
I saw you drive away...
the road was free.
It had taken so long
to open that door inside of me.

I waited....hours, days, weeks
you had promised the world to me

-nothing-

then you wrote me
that door inside of me...
...it closed...
silently.
