Coming Home – by Courtney LeBlanc

Courtney LeBlanc

Over dinner he asks, who will leave first?

He’s joking but my heart still drops a bit.

It’ll be you, he continues, I’ve got nothing

better lined up. I smile, laugh, sip my wine –

all too aware of my wandering eyes, my fickle heart.

I could fall in love a million times a day

but I keep coming home to him, keep crushing

the crushes, keep shoving hands in pockets

to keep from pulling another close.
