-The Place He 'Calls' Home-



He only came home early

Because he thought

I had promised him

Something I hadn't.


He only came

home early

because of that silent obligation

I had put out forth

with a bang

in our hearts

(but he claimed I

hadn't touched him)


I only pretended when

he arrived home

and he bought it

Just like he

wouldn't have



So distant when we are

the closest we can physically be

lost communication and

dreams gone astray

perhaps to be met

by another


he only came home

because he

didn't have anywhere

else to go.
