A Poem about COVID-19
Will you let me in?
I am so cold, and I don't belong here.
I don't belong anywhere.

Will you let me in?
I see your lights in the darkness.
I see your happy smiles through the window.

Will you let me in?
The snow is freezing to my face.
I am dying, and I need you.

Will you let me in?
I am knocking on your door.
You watch me curiously through the peephole.

Will you let me in?
You are not scared of me.
Yet, you should be.

Will you let me in?
You open the door and wrap me in a blanket.
You welcome the weary traveller.

Will you let me in?
My clothes are faded, and my skin pale.
Every ounce of your vibrancy fills me.

Will you let me in?
You prepare a space for me.
I merely shake my head at your questions.

Will you let me in?
How long will you be here? You ask.
One week. Two weeks.

Will you let me in?
I hide in the walls and watch you.
I accept your invitation.

Will you let me in?
The colors of your home become dull.
The days pass and you call to me less and less.

Will you let me in?
The lights go out and do not turn back on
The paint peels from your walls.

Will you let me in?
Your home is cold and lifeless now.
Another place I am not welcome.

Will you let me in?
I pick myself up and leave your crumbling home.
You are gone as I am.

Will you let me in?
Another house. Another smiling face.
I am knocking on your door.

Will you let me in?
I am so cold, and I don't belong here.
I don't belong anywhere.
