Home Again


Today, I want you to hold me close.

Hold me close, 

Until I feel safe again,

I miss that feeling.

Sometimes, at night, I fall asleep to the thought of that,

You holding me, close.

In your arms,

So warm,

So familiar,

I feel safe.


This is what love feels like, 

I tell myself as my lips uncontrollably start to stretch,

Smiling from ear to ear. 




Tomorrow, It’ll be different.

I’ll tell myself that I’m fine.

I can do this without you, 

And that I’ll be happy,

And I will be. 

But today is today, 

And home is where the heart is.
