your face is a home (freeverse)

your face is home
the contours of where i rest
outlines most familiar 
a shape i have taken  
this is home to me
i can explore it for a lifetime 
live there forever

as it gets older
what lies beneath 
still pure 
and the face
will always be a home

as i look into your eyes
i see a peace
take comfort within your gaze
as everything flows through nothingness
and i drift away 
there is so much here
ready for me
waiting for me

as i look around 
mouth and nose 
monuments of beauty 
i nestle myself there 
finally found my peace
have been longing for this
for a place to call home
