well this was supposed to be a happy poem...

those stairs stirred warring thoughts

it’s funny how it began

it’s funny how it began beneath those rustic

it’s funny how it began beneath those rustic wooden stairs

how it creaked on

how it creaked on every other step and

how the curtains

how the curtains in the windows would flare

how the curtains in the windows would flare with a passing glance

peeking through.

much like the moon that

much like the moon that filtered between the cracks

much like the moon that filtered between the cracks and spilled in silver pools

beneath those

beneath those heavy shining glares.

how the wind would filter

how the wind would filter the air and lift up your hair

how the wind would filter the air and lift up your hair and shiver goosebumps

over your skin

or how the shadows deepened

or how the shadows deepened the farther you crawled in

or how the shadows deepened the farther you crawled in and cocooned you

in a blanket.

i gave you too much credit

i gave you too much credit to remember those

molding aging stairs

where the memories began

where the memories began and the light went

out.
