No One Wants To Come Into My Home
 
(This was written in recognition of the isolation spiral that compounds living on the dark side of the moon in a world driven by admiration of the sun.)

No one wants to come into my home
Iíve tried for days to get a visitor
Maybe they think thereís too many locks
Maybe they hear the animals inside
Maybe itís ugly how somethingís amiss
But I canít seem to find the right welcome mat
So no one wants to come into my home

No one wants to let me into their home
Iíve tried for weeks to be a visitor
Maybe they think Iím pushing something
Maybe they donít want to catch what Iíve got
Maybe they already have enough sugar
But the doors get thicker whenever I crack
So no one wants to let me into their home

No one wants to look at my yard
Iíve tried for months to craft my own visitors
Maybe they think itís just abstract art
Maybe they can tell Iím an amateur at this
Maybe I shouldnít have replicated their clothing
But the mailbox fell over and the grass got too long
So no one wants to look at my yard

No one wants to repurpose my home
Iíve tried for years with visits to town hall
Maybe itís an investment with no returns
Maybe they have more pressing matters
Maybe I donít understand how this works
But I always end up fumbling the mic
So no one wants to repurpose my home

No one wants to take me out of my home
I spent a whole lifetime visiting the dead
Maybe their headstones are ellipses, not periods
Maybe dirt is the universal foster home
Maybe I was drawn closer each time I looked
But the longer I hang, the grayer I get
So no one wants to take me out of my home

A very well written poem... I found it lovely. I would definitely come into you're home if we lived close by! Sounds like an eccentric place to be!
