Come Home

Music / Original Poetry

And still
those nights when I’m working
painting
writing
creating,
I listen to R&B
because that’s what was on
when I was waiting for you
to come home.
Music Soul Child,
Eric Benet,
Babyface,
Jagged Edge,
Keith Martin.
They sang my waiting heart
for you to come home.
To my arms, open but scared
to love you because maybe
you were open but scared
to love me.
You said you did
and then you said you didn’t.
Will I write about you
for the rest of my life?
Or will you come home?
