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.
