think of me like a house

think of me like a house
with a hundred compact rooms
filled with antiques and broken mirrors
the bones are still good
think of me like a house
with mismatched chairs
and vaulted ceilings
my height is my advantage
think of me like a house
where you hold your love for safe keeping
where your secrets stay within the walls
i peel them off like wallpaper
think of me like a home
where we are safe
and gloriously free
