A knock at the door...
I courteously opened
I received...
I obliged..
 
Thoughts flowed with mine...
procured creations,
fascinating at times...
 
...it was nice while it lasted...
 
...The drink turned sour...
From a ripe apple...
putrid inside its core,
emanated powerful repulsion.
 
I aired out the room...
The stench remains...
Like a curse...
Impossible to cast out.
 
...No options left...
It is time...
to walk out the door...
away from it all...
far, far away...

Eek. I know the feeling form both sides. Sometimes I think I am the knock, sometimes the repulsed. Nicely done.
