February 18th; Keys

Love recognizes keys to the heart,
but some keys cannot make the engine start.

Shove it in hard enough for two souls-
scars stay fresh for those young and old.

Then keys are made for houses-
made for consoling arguing spouses,

but the most useful of all those,
are the skeleton keys whose anitquity grows.

And memories of the skeleton key drains-
leaving a universal love to never return again.

The End
