Coming Home

I don’t want to offend,
but this has to end.

The message has been sent.
I said what I meant.

Someday you’ll find me,
and then you won’t mind me.

Until then,
I can’t say when.

It’s music to my ears,
those shifting gears.

I’ll drive all night
if it’ll do me right.

I can only hope
you’re able to cope.

Or maybe you don’t care.
Your eyes just simply stare.

I cannot tell
if I’ll enter hell.

At least it’s not heaven.
No seven times seven.

Just numbers that make sense,
their meaning so immense.

It gives me a good feeling
to realize I’m healing.

There’s nowhere else to go
but up and through pure snow.

I won’t ever be found
until I’ve hit the ground.

Then I’ll experience peace
living under these trees.

It’s my only desire.
I wish to expire.

I’m happily alone.
I’m finally coming home.

Your spirit washed me until my mind, body, and soul
were as pure as the moment I came out of the womb.

No artificial noise,
only a silence so pure.

The wind steals in through
a crack beneath the front door.

She’s a Goddess

clothed in a hoodie,
wrapped in pride,
veiled in insecurity.
