“Untitled I”

by Erica Lampe

A mysterious man knocked on my door

I did not hear

I did not want to see

 

I finished all my consuming chores

He still on my stoop

I did not care to see

 

Days went by, weeks passed by

And soon the seasons changed

But I dare not wish to see

 

Carrying on with my own life

I only cared for me

I never thought to see

 

Until the day curiosity fell on me

Why has he stayed? How long had it been?

What did he want from me?

 

I walked slowly, hesitating at the door

Twisted the knob; I fell to my knees

I finally have seen.
