This poem is by Anita Anderson

AUTHOR'S NOTE: "I wrote this one a few years ago when my boyfriend was diagnosed with agoraphobia but with help he is now outside looking in...

The Shutter

I peer throught a slanted vision
letting no one out and no one in
I fear the arms that open wide
I tell no truth I speak no lies
I only see a slight embrace
I only see a half of face
I open up but only a little
I see the trees and more people
I look up now and theirs the sky
Sunlight and clouds go passing by
Children playing in the street
I hear the shuffling of little feet
I look back now upon my door
I think and wonder whatever for
Some day I might be outside looking in
But for now I peer through a slanted vision
