The Locked Door


On your way out
Did you lock the door?
Are you sure you locked it fast?

I’m sure
I always do
I check it once, then twice

I close the windows
Shut the blinds
And lock the door

I’m just not sure
Which side of the door
I’m standing

Sometimes I’m outside
Locking myself in
Others I’m inside
Locking the world out

And you?
Are you outside

Trying to come in?

  2. A total of 30 minutes a day. I calculated it once. It drove my ex crazy.
