Open doors and closed windows

She was a
beautiful home
she invited me in
the door was opened
to a damaged heart

Inside
windows closed
sealed shut
suffocating
stifling

The fire of abuse
burns to the core
open the windows
let the pain out
escape outside.

Patsy Starke 4/21/2024, To all who suffer from any abuse. Reach out, get out!
