not a home

this house is not a home barren with bodies cold with central heat this house is not a home no shared exchanges just shared glances this house is not a home my feet drag everytime i enter my soul dreads the key’s entry this house is not a home no love, no smiles no hugs, no embrace this house is not a home i hurt, you hurt, we hurt no communication, no expectations this house is not a home built on pettiness, pain is the cornerstone this house is not a home i want to create a safe space in my mind the living rooms of my mind hath no sanity this house is not a home i long for the day i can feel again under this roof this house is not a home i want to like you both again this house is not a home i want to love again i want to feel free i want to experience freedom is the key in my pocket? this house is not a home this house is not a home this house is not a home
