safe places

High off the ground
enclosed around
with a back door.
windows to see out of
sheltered from the worlds eyes

safety lives
love sprouts here,
in these safe places.

another living body
close to mine old feelings
in my safe place.

near your chest,
where i hear your life murmur
your warmth
seeping into my dead flesh
warming my cold heart.

hidden in corners of buildings
where no eyes can find us
do we live in those moments
in my growing comfort,
in my safe places
