Fresh Absence

It was the jarring sound of fingernails on a chalkboard

Or furniture scratching wood floors as the layout of the room changed

Although the door was heavy and the hinges rusted

I pushed it shut and backed away

An empty feeling coursed my veins and settled in my stomach, realizing what I had done

And that this door, like the one next to it, didn't need to be locked

For no one would dare come back through them

There was no rush of relief at the lack of potential intrusion

No pang in my heart at the picture in my mind of who stood on the other side

Just ringing in my ears

Just exhaustion in my bones

Just another empty spot in my life, waiting to be filled
