Welcome Home – Written Tuesday 16th March 2004 (Aged 24)

Welcome Home

i am your love
in your pillow
your soft welcome home
i am the things
your wanted
i never came with a guarantee
i was born,
as just me
and tigers still play
set them free
and then take hold of me
i am your lover
be the keys
to some magic door
for too long
i have been boredom’s faithful whore
but when you hold me
a house of two
your soft welcome home
just me and you
