lock-et

I stand by this title, though I can feel a surge of confusion and dis-like coming at me for it's non-conforming attitude.

Lock-et
by Joann Renee

like a clasp
love
let go

simple
easy
reset the trigger

well-oiled hinges
restore sighs
struggling

fingers grasp
lock it
release

time goes
unwieldy
cumbersome

is it callous
or practice
that brings ease

gliding so
smoothly transitioning
my heart

open close open
creating vacancies
wordlessly

turning rooms over
when it’s occupant clears
out too soon
