Elena

Strawberry sky

The sweet smell of lilac and Sakura fill the room

The sound of the kettle singing on the stove 

Whistling along to it is second nature by now

Christmas lights case the walls smoothed in Star Wars posters

Always saying that the force is strong with us

An unseen movement that will keep us strong, always

The apartment leaks of pieces of you

Coming home is an adventure that I look forward to every night

Finding a new piece of the puzzle on the floors of our home

The television is screaming in Japanese from a blue light

In front of the couch where we waste the day away in warmth

Watching a queue full of anime, sharing our favorite ramen

I see your reflection in the bathroom mirror

Humming your favorite song, brushing your hair

Your crystal eyes meet mine 

You smile 

I’m home
