This week at P/S United, Magaly G. asks us to contribute to the Weekly Scribble with something conjuring or recording “A Troubled Relationship”…
“I Have Closed The Door”
Please tell me what you meant;
that your last phone message
was not intended to be the last.
Please help me to understand
the last five words you spoke;
see if I’ve gotten them right.
Your intent was indecipherable.
Tell me you have closed the door
just because you always close doors
and not as some obvious gesture
signified by doors, closed,
or by locked locks.
Tell me that it’s not a secretly
hidden message; that you’re only
going out for a little fresh air;
that you’ll be back in a flash; back
before I know I’m lonely; before
I even know the door is closed;
that you haven’t really left me
