I was rebuilding my strongholds
Then you stayed
For ten days and ten nights and flooded my foundations
A reign of terrifying pleasure
I wanted you to stay forever.
You put your bags in my hallway and your clothes on my floor
I gave you my baggage
You gave me fireworks and butterflies and shivers on skin
You gave me looks I wanted to deserve.
In the small hours we dreamed big
We’d both travelled the roads, you and I
It felt so good to come home.
