climb up the stump

If I opened the door of my secret shelter
would you turn round and come in?
Would you climb up the stump
and go through my garden
solely for me?
And if yes,
would you be willing to open up and inhale
the spine-tingling whisper
carried by my breath?
And afterwards to exhale…
whatever you want to exhale.
But if I closed my shelter’s door
and said goodbye to you
would you then go away?
