My Sweet Home

A long day grazed my hurting bones
against a high-strung flesh.

By the end of troubles, it finally found
respite under hot water,

clasped between your arms.
Wretched tiredness like a dark cloud

above my curls evaporated
under a loving embrace that knew

exactly how to hold my heart,
Serenade a tired soul with a steamy tongue

that licked my bruise, kissed my wounds
while tears rushed, incarcerated no more,

Chasing each other, hoping to disappear,
among hundreds of anonymous drops

of simple comfort made luxurious
by you, my sweet home.
