Knock — Knock

Have you ever waited? 
on the other side of the door
for years… full of tears
for familiar footsteps
the sound of heartbeats
recognizable across closed doors
his scent of cool waters
seeping through the door
for that distinct knock 
from ions before.

Have you ever waited? 
on the other side of the door
after years… full of tears
for her to open the door
same old anklets tinkling
as hurried feet rush to the door
the smell of trésor 
her warmth flooding the floor
waiting arms from long ago
that smile behind the door.

Have you ever waited? 
On the other side of the door.
