I Remember.

I remember now.
Why I closed all the doors and locked them tight.
I pulled down the blinds and ignored when you knocked at the door.

I remember now why.
Why I made you small in my mind.
Why I put all of our memories in a box and buried it deep inside.

I remember now.
Why I wasn’t strong enough to keep you close.
So I shoved you as far away as I could.

I remember now why.
Why I convinced myself to hate you.
Why I erased all the good times.

I remember now.
Because as soon as I lifted the lid to my box of forbidden memories,
and pulled my blinds to the side.
and unlocked just one of my closed doors.
You came pouring back in like a tidal wave.
And I was left, once again, under your mercy.
