Just us, Forever

I have handed many people the keys
and trusted them to know what to do
but they would promptly drop them
at their own feet and run up to the gates
of my heart and shake at my ribs
to let them in.

You were different.
I handed you the keys
and you put them in your breast pocket
against your own heart.
You looked into my eyes
and reached around me with your arms
until there was
no lock,
no gate,
just us,
