Never wanting to leave

Strange how the couch lounges the same across the room

Inviting us to kick off our shoes

And lay relaxed upon it

*

How the table still stretches to the stars with

the towers of hookah and beer bottles

*

That puppy, like a wound-up toy,

That always runs straight to me,

Jumping excitedly

*

Strange, how, painlessly,

I walked unexpectedly through the door

and into the past

*

Without thinking, effortlessly,

I fell into a pool that couldn’t drown me

Realising that home was not fixed,

But travelled from place to place,

And that these friends of mine

Are the anchor

And that these boys

Are the keys

To my home

*

Seems like it was home all along

And that it took meeting you guys for the familiarity to rush back

And grab hold of me again

*

That blanket of safety that hovers over me,

Soothingly,

When I’m in your company

*

The laughter that I can’t help but cough out

So strong is its need to express itself

And the happiness and ease,

Like a drug,

That leaves me giggling and smiling

And never wanting to leave

*
