… behind my door?

because in your condition
of self compromise

one look into the eyes
of such, in spite of it all,

one understanding smile

a smooth forehead

one mild rueful chuckle

and you will be driven
to drive it away

now instead of later

having taken now everything
everything else

please leave me this peace
