Out

One Day…
…you’ll find
that I,
having nothing more to say,
have shuttered the windows,
closed all the doors,
and went along my way
Out.

And…
…you’ll find
that you,
having something left to say,
will tap at the windows
and rattle the doors
and try to find a way
In.

But…
…you’ll find
the windows
and the doors are locked
and the light that shined
and cast itself onto shadows
has, at long last, gone
Out.

Then…
…you’ll find
yourself asking
why, when I lived here
and the doors were open
and light filled this place,
exactly it was you never came
In.
