My Place

My Place short poem

Uploaded by Jamin Benjamin

The tree covered path had me but the light,
Intrigued my senses so i pushed through the fright,
Crackling branches above aging before falling through,
Only one entrance, i’d prefer two.

Tilting my head i seemingly entered another time.. i saw a house far from its prime,
Sleazy while so ordinary with stains on the walls,
Present in the room i dissapear,
Full of empty area to fill,
Drapes are like adding up failures,
Decor of forgetting who is internal master,
Whistling loud the demensions are designed so poorly,
I still can save the wooden floor,
Shameless care dwindles on through wide windows,
The kitchen is rusted messy but the tabke will do as one,
Internal claims held up in court over how many trees are too many,

The internal is based on the ex.
Finish my real estate of deep thought…

Dont tire, run like youll never be caught.
I guess sleazy is generous,
This place is awful, and unique, and perfect, and bought.

The moon awaits eagerly in the same pedestal it ignited my passion. What lips, my lips have kissed, are long forgotten. The memories easily quickened as a few puddles along the way I voluntarily stepped in. What arms have lain
