retreat ~ [//hideaway//]  

this is not my face
with the tired lines
framing watery eyes
or the chapped lips
bitten raw & bleeding
this is not what i
will bring home to you ~
... but i am still, in some ways,
all the ways that count
the child you found
hiding in the shed
trying to cover my tears
now i'm more broken than
the chaos i'll walk into
but i crave the comfort
only home brings to
those who wander aimlessly
i need the azov to wash away
everything i've become  ~
... but i am still, in some ways,
all the ways that count
the lost girl along the coast
staring out at the shallows
& praying for more depth ...
