: : What does this sentence mean? "No one will ever darken your door again, for sometimes, time can not heal all wounds and peoples live with self pity."

: Nobody will visit you.

The point being that somebody standing in your doorway blocks out the light, and therefore "darkens the door" as they come through. (VSD)
