let her in


and if melancholy
should come
knocking
at your heart's door
once again,
don't force her out
don't push her away,
this time.
don't sneer
or throw slurs
at her,
this time.
don't run, and
don't pretend
that she hasn't
gripped
your heart,
this time
greet her
smile at her,
welcome her,
let her in,
embrace her,
sit with her
and listen;
listen to what she says,
listen to what she wants
sit with her
and understand her,
understand
why she is here,
why she keeps
coming
knocking
at your door
again and again
and once again,
this time.
and if melancholy
should come
knocking
at your heart
once again,
let her in.
embrace her,
this time.
