Daily Prompt: There’s No Place Like Home.

Daily Prompt: There's No Place Like Home

I was in the Badlands when you found me.

I was dragged along on the string of your balloon,

my toes scraped the Rockies when we barely made it.

I wanted to take a bite out of your fleeing cloud, I wanted to

swim in your ocean.

We rode donkeys in Mexico; we stayed up until the still morning beside the lagoon in Venice where you

wrapped me up in silk scarves, poured wine between my lips.

Down my nose;

we danced all night.

You opened all the windows and the bugs crawled across the ceiling and we finally slept restless on the bare floorboards.

I climbed you like a mountain, you’re a forest, I’d go anywhere.
