Classical … typical

At the door she stood
Half naked the light went through
Her see through open robe
Half open to be accurate
Occurred to me as I was
Half listening to her stream
Of words, a self held

How typical of you
Always half never to end
Can’t you hold the way
Can’t you reach the climax of
Success can you not persist
A classical line she toed

How typical of us
To remain unchanged for
So long stuck in the
Old ways afraid of saying
I do not love you
I do love you not
Perhaps I hate you because
I can’t leave you to
Your self held conversations
And your nakedness
And your halfway doors
Where you always stand
I can’t just leave you
In a whole decision once
In a decision undivided
I can not leave you
