Evicted

Evicted short poem

Photo by fullyreclined

I’ve lived in your heart for three years.
My payments were always before time.
If I made too much noise I assure you I didn’t know.
My foot steps are often loud, the neighbor beside me keeps his music up.
I never filed a complaint.

Accepting things as they are.

Outside of that nothing seemed to be wrong.
The conditions weren’t bad at first.
Everything worked.
The sink clogged a bit.The locks need to be replaced.
The things of which I done myself.
I felt home here in my one bedroom.

Not too much company so no need for much furniture.
There were nights I couldn’t feed myself,
making sure your demands were met.
Differences between needs and wants.
Still I received note after note about noise among other things.
Things accused of though disputed.
You smiled in my face and told me all was forgiven.
To receive a note of eviction.
The neighbors music still loud.
My landlord unable to be found.
Someone new moving into my place
