painted

they painted
the apartment buildings
now
when i look outside
it is a different view

it feels less
like home
than the home
it hasn’t felt like
for so long now

i only like
a handful of things anymore
the rest is just extraneous filler
until i can get my
mind and heart united

but
they painted
the building outside
while the cathedral
inside my mind

remains empty

  1. “it feels less like home than the home it hasn’t felt like for so long now” inner and outer, a new ‘outer’ paint job, the separation of heart and mind ….. what can I say……. Speaks to me.
