A Place Called Home

There’s a place and space that reminds you of who you are.

reminds you of who you don’t get to be in the rest of this big wide world.

It takes you back to crickets at night and honey suckle.

you can hear yourself think. And breathe.

There are stars there.

Go there in your mind. Often.

but actually take your body there sometimes.

It misses you more than you miss it.

Protect it. for it has protected you.
