  •  SPLIT

    You went into your room
    and turned the key.
    I stood there.  
    You watched me
    through the keyhole
    and cried
    and spat venom.
    I stood there,
    the door in my face,
    trying to see inside.
    I could only see myself
    And spiting venom.                     
    I stopped
    and turned away.
    I don't care. 
    It is just another locked door
    In a big house.
