it’s a long way home

Long waits and long flights

14 hrs to be precise.

there are millions of stars circling my crown

choosing to navigate me closer with each passing breath,

and a Moon that hypnotises me with her pull

Migrating me past borders

my wanderlusting has lead me to familiar grounds,

grounds i’ve scrupled over for years

procrastinating on the day I will part my lips and utter

words so liberating, my veins pop and ache;

“It’s me, I’m home now”.
