Outdoors to go

The walls of this house keep us together
while shadows are stalking every movement
and doors close with infinite bangs and draught.

Sunlight is fighting your silhouette on the floor,
we know there are some flowers already blooming.
Are you really afraid we might lose each other?

I open a window and see, a stray cat enters,
we can’t keep the world out of our house
and the walls can’t keep us from moving.
