Stands on the porch. His gaze set on a lock. He peers through the keyhole. Nothing. Sets off to find it. What will open her? What will free her? Will he? No. It will. But what is it? He looks. He searches. He cannot find it. He will not give up. The house is crumbling. She is crumbling. He won’t let her fall. Not now. He is close. He can feel it.
There. He has found it. So close yet so far. Why? Because she has it. She doesn’t understand. She will not give the key up. She doesn’t know what will happen. The house will crumble. It will fall. Not only will it break her, but it will break him too.
