Polish Me Home – Short Poem

Polish Me Home

via the daily post 


Slam your fingers through the mud

grasp my sides and lift me up;

Cradle my complex body betwixt your fingers

as you gently rub


Strip me bare. Your words cut these walls and grind my corners

I’m lost to the senses within this mess

Each day

more is lost


Each day I’m falling fast

my sense of self

is brushed to dust


you’ve polished

my soul

now bring me home
