Lying forgotten, you need it no more
The key in the bottom of the cabinet drawer
Thereís string and gloves and a few tools
Coupons and other expired stuff
Accumulations that wonít be used anymore.

A spare key to the front door
It used to fit on a ring
A ring that jingled in your purse
It lies now neglected, no reminder of the worse
Day that ever happened, reminder of the curse.

Itís sensible to have a spare key
Someone might visit, a neighbor might feed a pet
But this one keeps itself hidden
No reminder of the past
Who wants visits from anyone after that?

Thereís string and soupcan clippings
The school will never use
With dates that expired years ago
Expiration is just the word for that key right now
A use-by-date on long faded love.
