Making Room


It would be easy
to make space
for you in my heart.
as you can see,
I already have a spare bedroom.

I must apologize
for its clutter and mess, it hasn’t been used in
some time
but it could use a boarder like you.

Just give me time
to clean,
to remove the cobwebs
and the memorabilia of bygone residents.

I will warn you,
there are holes in the walls
I’ve never been able to fix.

Maybe you’ll have better luck than I
