It has come
to my attention,
in other words,
to my notice,
occupancy exceeding,
limitations to my bliss.
Tenants,  Doubt and Fear
in violation of their lease
subletting empty spaces
in a haunted heart
that will remain
The curtains drawn
the mirror covered
as dust settles
on the sheets
cast hastily over
an antiquated
shriven of
hope, faith, and love.
