An unexpected place



living side by side
joy and hope
amidst despair

unmindful
of our yesterday

seeking, tugging, pulling
us
to an unexpected place

that no longer
welcomes
me

to
the
corner of 
your heart

that 
once 
was mine

~
missing the mom gene

That's one of those places that looks interesting and you can take a photo of and say, "how charming" but really, you wouldn't want to live there. I mean, is that a door serving as a window on the second floor? Doesn't look very structurally sound either.

I think that your poem looks a lot like an old fashioned keyhole or a person wearing a top hat with a big head and small arms.
