True Friends [Day 14]

This life doesn’t know how to come to terms with living,
these walls enclosing us- pretty pictures that sadden all of our being,
lips whispering about a happy place, a happy place and the happiest place
of them all:

what does home feel like? “people, always people.”
what do people feel like? “home, always home.”
and the vice versa taste of comfort stabs us in the front
and we wonder if it’s worth going back to people, and homes, and people

the sobs of discomfort catching up, as we pick ourselves up,
clear out our throats and pull out our hearts: hand them gift-wrapped
my favourite organ, here.” and watch a plastered smile take apart all that
you hold true-

how dare people be people and not homes?
