For @thepoemfight's topic, "home", my first ode to what I have called home.
Idea inspired by the song "Ode to Sleep" by twenty one pilots - https://youtu.be/Vp3WQ_iW...

ode to home

house or home,

house or home, i'd argue them to be two different things

lined within these walls

lined within these walls rests my heart and soul

lined within these walls rests my heart and soul that breathes life through open doors and windows

a keeper of memories

a keeper of memories printed upon glossy papers and framed to remember,

a keeper of memories printed upon glossy papers and framed to remember, the place to put your heart in a box

a keeper of memories printed upon glossy papers and framed to remember, the place to put your heart in a box and know that it'll be safe

free to let your soul run through the floorboards,

free to let your soul run through the floorboards, warmth crawling up from your toes

free to let your soul run through the floorboards, warmth crawling up from your toes snuggled deep in carpeted heavens

haven to heal wounds

haven to heal wounds that have punctured skin and worth alike

haven to heal wounds that have punctured skin and worth alike from where you cannot embody your spirit

a larger mother's cradle,

a larger mother's cradle, wraps you up whole,

a larger mother's cradle, wraps you up whole, surrounding all that is loved and cherished,

a larger mother's cradle, wraps you up whole, surrounding all that is loved and cherished, never allowing a moment to forget

strung as an ornament of my heart,

strung as an ornament of my heart, what i return to when my world has fallen down

for i know it'll nourish my broken wings

until i'm ready to go again
