In Your Heart

May I request a room
inside your heart, perhaps out back,
A closet with a broom
would be just fine, you see, the lack
of fancy things
like fixtures, special light
or furniture or angel wings
and linen oh so bright
does not disturb at all,
a cot will do quite well
small bathroom down the hall.
A pillow would be great
a lamp perhaps to read
those nights I stay up late
so, I would like to plead
one room, a jug of gin
your heart, so do I dare?
Your boarder, deep within
a bed, for you to share.
