Between the doorbell  Sound and my hand reaching for the door,
I grasp to a prayer for my fate to be overturned.
I mean it’s only been a couple of hours so there must be hope… right?
I tell the world I hope this human on the other side of the door is you.
Say I have been having a really bad dream.
And you are here to wake me up.

I turn the handle,

swing open the door;
The September wind strikes my chest and leaves with me breath.
My lungs fail to inflate as my retinas capture the truth.
There stands a sobbing human;

It’s not you.

I blink twice, move to the side, unable to speak I let them in.
They walk in.
And I am still standing at the door struggling with news that isn’t ready to fuse with truth.

Your soul has returned.
