Closer Than Before

Closer Than Before

A Story by Sleep Practice


and heavier

and hungrier


you say goodbye but it is only temporary

you come back in the nautical twilight

when the lights are off and the doors unlocked

when you are unexpected but not unwanted

you open the door and step in

the rooms look large until you enter them

the hallways, shorter than they appeared

you pass through a heavy velvet curtain

and stand in the back yard

the trees and flowers make you nostalgic

but you dont know why

you move through the thick curtain and you are inside

the rooms arent furnished

it is raining

a cracked door in the distance

light yawns down the hall

you stand in front of the door after only a few steps

the light is grey

a deep and inviting grey that you want to sink into

you open the door

and step in
