Talk about Keyholes - Oct. 29, 2020

like everyone else I was gifted

three companions at birth

Past Present Future

we started growing together

then grew farther and farther apart

two became too difficult to live with

so I kept the middle one with me

the most honest of my escorts

and adopted out the others

to one of those free-roaming places

now I visit them both quite often

lean over the fence and talk about keyholes

the doors we opened and

the ones we were looking forward to


with the fragile one it's always painful dialog

around promising someday adventures

that time never gave us keys for

until he suddenly turns and walks away

and not one time has he ever stopped

to say goodbye
