Narrow Hallways

i dont know how to live without you
no one ever taught me how
so i will learn slowly
how to untangle my past
knowing that the way those knotted strings
will lead back to you
hoping all the way through
that it wont
i will retie all those strings
to leave them all the same
until my hands are red
and swollen
and ugly
just like the face of our collective past
worn out i will relax
because i hate clean paths
and narrow hallways with closed doors
and no options
i dont want to walk
aimlessly towards you all the time
when i should be walking away
