I was walking towards the door

Keys in hand

Purse hanging on my shoulder

Wiped out from a long day

Of reading, editing, trying to avoid unnecessary banter with my supervisor

And I don’t remember anything

Yet waking up in a hospital

Family gathered around

And confusion from coming back to consciousness

Having felt nothing

Numbness a welcomed escape from heartbreak

But that wasn’t the case

I headed towards your door

And fainted

Only your touch

Could revive me
