Come in. Here you can admire a pair of legs that ran further once you bruised me and returned twice more quickly when you gave me hopes. Here we have two intimate arms embraced around the abandoned body by the fondness of your body. Two eyes, one dried of longing, the other one being lightened naively by dreams with you. Smothered lungs by your airs. The heart, we apologize, could no longer be exposed because it was broken. We beg you to leave because it is closed. Definitively.
