longing for home {a poem}

i am longing for home.

i imagine it a small space,
just big enough for my heart
to beat
and to be held.

i am longing for home.

the ache beats through my chest,
caressing skin and bone
with burning desire.

i am longing for home.

i imagine it might be found
in your arms.
