no sign of inhabitance inside the empty space.
sending away your slow pace,
that intimate troubled space.
where you first discovered one another bodies.
the door opens before your hands reach the handle.
the sudden rush of a thousand visions of roses and mirrors reflecting

you visualize her, inhale her.
a room can never be replaced by a past person.
never was so decadent.
the truth is she is a room,
an inner mind seeking intimacy.
