The way things go



As the stresses of the day wear on,
My furrowed brow tucked firmly in pensive thought,

My back torn open from the malicious whips of jealous competition

Lips pursed tight, 

chest groaning with slivers of painful angst 
Mind racing foul
I carry my heavy load yoked firmly home
I walk through that familiar door 
bright eyes burning with warm welcome seer through me 
my furrows are swept away
tension easing,

I unfurl as you  rise to greet me,
Warm smiles contagiously leap on to my gaunt expression
tender lips move so gently over mine
softening every hash word passed through them, 
My chest unclenches releasing butterflies from thier  paranoid chains
Warm arms brush away the stings of the days warfare 
Relief washes through me
My armour falls away 
As my soul tucks tightly into you 
A whisper from my heart releases
'I'm home'.
