Falling in love is

Like moving into the dream home you’ve had your eyes on forever

You want to paint a masterpiece

A mural to immortalise your love

On every wall of their heart

But have to be mindful

Of the wallpaper, pictures and notes

Left by their past in certain rooms

You may have moved into the house

With huge bags of stuff to renovate

And redecorate

But there is a story in the foundation

Gently weave your brush

Between cracks in the ceiling

Paper that has yet to peel away

And nails stuck deep into studs
