I hear you whispering in my ear. Knocking at my door. Pay attention! Pay attention! There is something I have to tell you! Something urgent, something true. I turn on the light and squint with displeasure "What is the password?", I say with amuse. "Does it matter?", you hiss. "Yes", I whisper back, "boundaries are a must. I don't just let anyone into my house, you see. Only I hold the key." The darkness holds you still. You're shocked! What happened to the people pleasing girl I knew? But after a ponder you quickly propose, "I'm sorry. I didn't mean what I said last night. Will you please let me in?" And from the depths of darkness you start hearing laughter calling "Let you in?", I say. "You must be joking. I have nothing left to offer you. Time is of the essence and I cannot continue this game. Now leave me to sleep as I was having a good dream." You shake your head with confusion Our relationship had been your safest scheme. Now what would you do? Rejection didn't suit you. So you leapt from the porch in search of the next ear, trusting she was near.
