Don't leave me out alone.
I have ventured into a maze to get here, I also let go of the thread, thinking myself as not lost at all.

Open the door,
for if you don't, I don't know where to go.
It's still pleasant outside, it feels good but I can't recognise this place, I've never been here before and I don't know the way out.
Quite frankly, I don't want to find it, I don't want you to show it to me either, just show me the way in.

Was it something I said?
Or maybe something I could have said but didn't, something I've done at the wrong time?
Something I've broken the very moment I tried to save it?

I'm sorry, I've jumped into this without a parachute, headfirst,
so high that I'll sink so low coming down.
I'm sorry, it's not what I meant.
Let me rewind this month, let me knit you a jumper with the thread of the days, one loop into the other, merging the particular into the universal, this little fraction of time into eternity.

Please let me in,
don't be afraid I won't understand, I too carry my baggage of fears.
Don't be dismissive, don't put me under a bell jar, don't patronise me.

Let me in, or come out if you like.
Just don't leave me out alone.
