Locked in (100 word story)

Each time he stops at the door but won’t go in. The pathway has grown bare with the trail of his footsteps. His courage has failed him again – to knock on that door. She watches him leave, wanting desperately to call  his name and open that door.

Deep inside, they both know that opening that door would be a big mistake. But that does not take away the heartache and loneliness of living in a vacant house that is no longer yours.

You are a tenant, a lodger with no keys to your own heart.

Commitment has locked you in.
