I am finally home
my light brown shirt
dark and sticking to my skin
with the sweat from the long walk.
I am finally home
standing at my front door
the sun low behind me
and newspapers piled high
I am finally home
these feet are bloodied
the soles worn bare
but I am finally home
the wandering and wondering
have come to end
and my heart shakes with
the thought of my own bed

this pain in my shoulder
is distracting my mind
from the biting chill of winter
which has passed through
the foyer and drifted down
the long, lonely hallway
leading to my sullen boudoir
