You cannot make homes out of people

I built a home in his rib cage

I housed butterflies in his stomach, Planted flowers in his lungs, and smelled sweetness every time he whispered my name.

I noticed the smell changed The day he met her.

He was looking through records She also liked REO Speedwagon

I watched the wallpaper peel

And I stayed

I watched the roof cave

And I stayed

I watched the butterflies die

And I stayed

I watched the ground turn to spoied soil

And the flowers went away And my name left a stench

And I learned not to build homes out of people

Because their bodies cannot maintain your presence

You deserve stable foundations.
