You have a beautiful heart

And you let me in.

No, doubt it was very generous of you,

But I can’t stay unless you let me own it.

I need to own all of it, all the rooms and all the walls,

All the closets and all the skeletons in them,

And every beat of your heart.

I will give you every beat of my heart in return.

I seek ownership, not Just good hospitality.

So, all that you have done, thank you for that,

Thank you for your hospitality,

But I have to leave, my dear.

I was never looking for a shelter,

I am not afraid of walking in the cold,

I am in search of a home.
