New Roomate

Hey, wait a minute
Who are you, how’d you get in here?
I thought I’d locked all the doors
And the boards I nailed up
Usually keep people well away
Most just think it’s abandoned
And that’s the way I like it.

What back door?
There’s a back door now?
So you just snuck in and made yourself comfortable?
Is that your coat on the hook
Your shoes under the bed
Feeling all at home are we?
Well, I guess as long as your here…

Ummm, sorry about the state of things
I don’t get many visitors
Haven’t cleaned up in years,
Yeah, let me shift those clothes
Sorry about them, and those pictures
I’ve been meaning to toss those
But you know how it can be.

I’ve been meaning to get the cracks fixed
I forgot how shabby it is in here
What’s that? You say it’s not so bad?
Well that’s kind and all but…
Oh, really, you think it’s cozy?
Ummm, well, uh, thanks
The longer you sit there, the more it seems you belong.

Can I get you something, tea perhaps
No? Oh, you made yourself some
Know your way around pretty well
It’s getting a bit warm in here all of a sudden
I always thought it a little cold in here
The emptiness always seemed
To carry the winter in it.

What? You’d like to stay?
Are you sure, I mean, I bet you could find better…
Really? It feels like home?
I’ve never felt it, but I’m glad you do
And you’re welcome to stay
I think I’d like that, yeah…
Stay as long as you’d like.

    it’s like you’ve shed a skin
    another growth ring appears
    other hues coming into focus
    so well deserved
