    If I opened the door for you
    I'm sure that you would come in
    But I know what you would see
    Blinding as the light can be
    May be too much to handle

    So I hide that door from you
    I explore from time to time
    I'll remove the lock and hinge
    And I suppose I'll let you in
    Once I clean the mess inside

    It's a wreck in there
    Years of love and pain
    Are horded in piles so high
    That I'll have to fix the sky
    With an elephant in the room

    Can't be sorted by letter
    Some feelings have no name
    The weight is always shifting
    And too much change for sifting
    Guess I'll just scrub it clean

    I suppose I could toss out
    Things I doubt I will miss
    But that can be hard to find
    Within the compounds of my mind
    It's why I'm always hording

    Maybe if I keep working
    And it looks neat enough
    I'll give you a key
    And you can help me
    Find a space for you

      I'm not very good at arguing this point, but I'll try again with your poem:

    For me, this poem says too much. The reader gets the emotion straight from the story, but that takes away from the general reaction of the reader. It could be more arbitrary, or open to interpretation; and sometimes when you paint everything in black and white it takes the poem into one specific direction, negating subjective interpretation.
    Know what I mean?


    I get this overwhelming theme of not being able to let go of something...or more specific, someone.
    And then when you find someone else you can only hope that you truly care for them instead of trying to fill this void. But it's not really a void, it's quite the opposite. It's a lack of space, that needs to be cleared. Love the irony. And I love what you did with the last stanza.

    A really good piece.
