the hours

had blurred together

I needed to close my eyes

in some place safe

not on planes in trains buses cars

& if asked

I couldn’t tell you how far

when I knocked your door


your face

fingers holding edge of wood

words did not matter


all was there in the stutter stumble

fluttering eyes not wanting to focus

& all I needed was some place safe

close these eyes of mine

though I couldn’t say how far

I’d come

but nobody here was asking

as none of that mattered
