Unhoused - Poem by JenOfPoetry METAPHORICALLY SPEAKING

I don't know how you got here
I really don't need you any longer
For in my heart it is you that I now fear
Sleepless hours
The day my pillows and sheets became lonely
Is the day my heart was torn from me
Although I do forgive
I have no other place for you to live
Many nights I stayed awake
Wondering how could I have made a grave mistake
Mind weighed down by the formation of mental objects
Understanding is zero
Just don't know how you got here
You no longer live near
Don't need you as an emotional hero
Emotions are unable to liberate and justify
To this I must adhere
Many days, walked the
Mysterious design
Meditating on the disbelief
That you walked away
Without a word…left me in grief
Like the clipped wing of a bird
I lost flight
In the darkness of confusion
I lost sight
With a constant bowed head
Before my bed I habitually kneeled
Waiting to be healed
Now you present yourself and ask pardon
Wanting to revive the desolate rose garden…
Passion for your structure holds strong
Until I am able to fully redeem and play along
The inconstant habit you possess…
I must confess…
I cannot be your partner in crime
At least not at this time
Later in age when maturity has bloomed
We can come into our own…
Until then…my heart is stone
Love has no home..
