Doors
Shut tight
lock securely
keeping in
keeping out
safe
inside
protected from
unknown

Doors
open slowly
just a crack
light creeps in
chases shadows
brings fears
wonder

Doors
protect
but
taking chances
means opening doors
walking through
and facing
what might be

Thanks

YouDon’t 

Know

Me

Yo don’t

And you never have

And there you sit

Misunderstanding written

Everywhere

Frustration etched 

In my heart

I think maybe

Pollyanna me?

I think maybe

You mean well

And yet

All is see

Is that

You have never seen me

Ever

At all

Brunch

Early
too early
for last night’s night owls
you start
coffee
hot and… no not black, not this morning
you enjoy the decadence
of cream
real cream
and sugar
Eggs
and ham
shrimp?  Why yes, Don’t mind if I do
and blintzes
and pasta
pasta?
YES
oh, the delight
simmer gently
in silence
of a lonely diner
morning starts late
but it can’t come too soon
