HOME

We stood still in the pine forest,
As mortality counted trees,
Our bodies amalgamating into one,
My finger digging deep into you.
We lived our entire lives in that moment,
The lightening of reality separated us,
You rummage through my face for approval,
I perfectly put up a strong facade as my soul breaks into innumerable
pieces.
I'll let you fly,
Breaking all shackles that held you even if they bleed my hands,
Freeing you of all burdens,
I'll carry them even if they make me kiss the earth,
I'll kiss it as if it were you,
I'll smile as you soar higher into the sun,
But ever-if ever you're craving for shade,
I'll be right here-to remind you of what home feels like.
