11am attempting to sleep In the Night Garden

if someone rejects your rejection
of their worst things
then that's not love

for love is not the answer
but always the question
how do we live through
this next moment together?

if someone has already closed
that doorway into the narrow garden
of our life
then leave them quickly
for they have closed
all the doors to love

look at them straightly
and ask the huge resounding
question of love:

I want you. I want you. But stop
this abuse, and stop pretending
that it is okay

and if unanswered, apart
from further manipulation,
dejection, violence
or denial
then walk away

however it hurts
walk away
