Doors and Windows


Watched you crawl

into a fold

in the Darkness,

whose raiment

hung like robes

from the sky.

You were just a child,

finding a secret

place to hide;

a doorway through.

You were all the world

of doors and windows,

long before the walls

were built around you.

From your hiding place

beneath Darkness’ garments,

I could hear you laugh,

because you knew

I couldn’t follow.

I have grown old

and I

can no longer see

the seams in everything.

Every day it becomes

harder and harder

to escape,

but I remember

how you showed me

the way.
