“Door Opened”
K.S. 2/21/13

She glanced at him,
Unwilling to save the obvious,
Door opened, door closed,
Knowing her willing mistakes,
But mired by emotional pride,
Door opened, door closed,
Doors closing with a crack,
He, over time was pushed, stepped away,
Door opened, door closed,
Tired eyes the walk away easy,
Undeserving, the ties no longer bound,
Door opened, door closed,
Here heart worth the measure,
With games she spread it thin,
Door opened, door closed,
Depending on him to wait through her fails,
To save her and be her side,
Door opened, door closed,
She played, and he no longer forgave,
Long since, turning his back to walk away,
Door opened, door closed,
Her option was to play the same game,
His…was freshly being paved,
Door opened, door closed
