Friday Poetry: "Coming Home"

Hey lovelies! IT'S FRIDAY. Finally. Seriously, I highly doubt I've ever been happier to see a weekend roll around. :P It's been a pretty long week for me, I'll admit, so it was really nice to just relax and hang out with my friends today. Plus, tomorrow there's a really big event at my school, which includes a used book sale, so we all know where I'll be spending most of the day! ;)

Today's Friday Poetry is a poem I was going to use for last week, but of course it got postponed a bit! I wasn't sure what direction I was intending on taking it, but the first line had been sitting in my notebook for ages, so I thought I might as well use it and see where it went. I quite like how it turned out in the end... what do you guys think? :D

love, Topaz

Coming Home

you have always made my name sound like poetry.

on your tongue, the letters seem to melt together and where the sunlight hits the water in lilting fragmented syllables you effortlessly spell out the beauty I never knew I possessed before you walked in and opened my eyes to where it was hiding all along

the tiny curl of your smile after the last sound falls from your lips ties me together in a soft and gentle embrace – and though I may never know just exactly how you do it more than anything else, darling, you have always made my name sound like coming home.
