Heartless Home

Like a child without a smile
like a night without a star
that's what a home without a heart feels like
its darkness is invisible
but I can feel it
under my skin
my head is where it lingers
the longest
in the back of my mind
it feels like I'm carrying a dead house
with me
everywhere through life
never knowing
when something will remind me
of what it doesn't have-
a heart


making it alive
is what it feels like

like a candle

its lights have been blown out
