come back home

come back home to me? 

red fears live in my bones, 

blue darts of electricity

sweep through the narrow corners of my heart. 

a beat barely makes it out alive when thoughts turn to you. 

are you with me? 

flashes of your velveteen hair and baritone voice 

play over and over in my head. 

 

irreplaceable memories of your soft head 

on the smooth lap of my skirt are on repeat. 

 

nothing makes sense anymore, 

fire burns in my blood, 

both numbing and burning through the shackles that chain me 

to the sentient sorrow of your absence. 

 

come back home, come back home.
