Home Sweet Home

I want To slip into    
The depths of your soul    
Quietly stepping through    
The back door unseen    
Into my comfy chair    
Laying Back, observing, relaxed    
Whispering softly the words    
That calm the demons    
Watching them slither away    
Slowly to their boxes    
Where the bastards belong    
Reclining farther, looking up    
Observing your beautiful mind    
glowing in the dark    
an old gas lamp    
flickering, showing the way    
Holding monsters at bay    
Keeping a close guard    
on this splendid place    
Ensuring it forever safe    
From the darkest beasts    
scratching at the walls    
With the demons resting    
All the chaos cleared    
Peace, love, tranquility subsidsiding    
Resting, eyes half open    
Watching for stray burdens    
Trying to escape cages    
Picking at the locks    
That hold them back    
My job now done    
All the messes Cleaned    
I'm content, I'm home
