This open door
Bars the way
Allowing passage
Without threshold
The room without

And standing in
And standing out
Are equally denied
For standing in your presence
I have not got the pride

Your wisdom reigneth
My indecision staineth
The floor and all around
And all the good that's left me
To say goodbye

Now, for a moment linger
Love, for a moment tried
But warm and fed, too easy
Be gone ungrateful guest
For lifted veils
Of time
And pace
Lack all that's known of my good grace

And love, that says the love word
And love, that fits inside
Is gone
But for the saying
And saying, ever lied
