political valentine

my heart is a house
but you didn’t knock
instead you broke in,
leaving the mirrors of my love shattered.
you ripped apart the ravishing art that hung on my walls, repainted me with infatuation
my rooms became burdened with regret
and my floors filthy with torment

i thought you would leave,
but instead you locked the doors
and barricaded me inside
my own home
