Soft curtains drive side to side,
As bodies unseen glide on by.
Never once do they speak this night,
Drifting along, just out of sight.
Tonight they change their silent keen,
As my ears fill with a buzzing dream.
Is the room empty, should I go check,
Did someone decide they wanted to come back?
Reaching for handle I hear it click,
Somber whispers uttered with mouthes so thick.
Don’t go in my mind screams,
Enter says this perfect scene.
Behind me clicks closed the open door,
As my body falls limp to this bedroom floor.
