Close To Inside

I want you here, almost inside,
but it was his words that reached
below my surface, those fucking words
that crawled inside of me,
and carved our names
into the walls of my secrets.
I’ve almost got you here, close to inside,
and when I close the door behind you,
it will be his darkest words that walk us home.
