COMING HOME

I want you to be happy
But only on my terms
Love consumes, suffocates
Feelings given, not returned

I need to understand you
Yet I choose what I hear
Your half of our story
Makes mine disappear

Loved ones misunderstanding
Judgements adding to their strength
Who really needs the truth?
Life's easier with pretence

They try to bring me down
I leave their troubles at the door
Contentment settles over me
Home sweet home once more

Shimmer and shaking, anticipating, I'm coming home.

Beautifully put babe.

It's always best to leave things on the doormat and not bring them into your place of peace and contentment.

Have a wonderful day today kiddo. Mine is about to wind down. It's past midnight now.

Love you.
