Call It Home

I bathe in the happiness you bring me

in showers, in waterfalls, in laughter.

Leaking from my body

all the hurt, the tears, the sadness.

In showers, in waterfalls, in laughter

I revel, knowing that you love me.

All the hurt, the tears, the sadness,

evaporates completely.

I revel, knowing that you love me.

I weep for the joy and warmth

and the tears evaporate completely.

My body trusts this, trusts us.

I weep for the joy and warmth,

calling it home when it runs away.

My body trusts this, trusts us,

and smoothes out flaws, again.

Calling it home when it runs away,

I bathe in the happiness you brought me

and smooth our flaws again.

You leak into my body.
