We Return Home

We return home and I let out breath I’d been holding
Since we left an hour ago

We return home and I force off my shoes
Glad I use elastic laces

We return home and I feel like an old timey soldier
Bandaged around my torso

We return home and I let myself fall to the couch
Knowing I’m allowed to rest now
