The knock

I keep the doors open
With the hope you might enter one day
These were the doors you knocked Every day, ever since we were kids
I knew the sound
It was gentle
It was kind
And it sounded of hope
It lulled me into sleep every time the nights seemed long
The nights when the wind howled and tore the world apart
I knew that knock would set everything right
And then one day it disappeared like that
No one came anymore or even if you did
You crawled in quietly
Stealthily through a crack in the wall
I could never see you around
Because I never heard you knock
I don’t hear it anymore
I don’t expect it anymore either
They tell me you’re there
I should look
But they don’t understand
That when there is no sound
Silence can eat your soul away
