Your eyes are glazed over.
In desperate need of a bath
You reek of last night's take out.
But you give me sanctuary.

With you I am
Free from all who seek me,
Securely contemplating
Life from your quiet embrace.

You warm me from the cold
Gifting me silence.
I yell, I talk, I sing, I pray.
Thoughts choked by
Outside chaos are realized.

In your ailments I offer
Neither tolerance or consolation;
Abandoning you for strangers
To make you whole again.

You welcome me back with
No questions of where I've been.
You give me sanctuary.
