Edward Bens,27 Times - Poem by Lora Cooley
I heard the sudden absence of a word
Stumbled and sputtered trying to find it back
Did you know you'd show me your scars?
I had a heavy heart
All wrapped in plastic
He asked if I could fix it
When you open the door
What is it you thought you'd find?
The door frame stood empty
How quickly did you get there?
Walking to unlock the door?
The feeling never left me
When I looked in your eyes
How you seemed to look through me
That memory moving behind me
She'd knocked and she'd knocked but he wasn't responding
Put the key into the lock
Feel the bolt slide away
His wires so tangled he was a stranger
I'm getting no answers
I leave it at arm's length
I'm stomaching nothing
I'm reaching for no one
I'm leaving this city
Carry your image
I think of you often
