|Continent Chasers - Annemiek & Shers|
©Shers Gallagher 2013
The places I have been fit together as a puzzle
just as places of the heart.
I have been all over the globe
with continent chasers of cosmic titillation.
They want to see it all,
feel and be in the eye of the storm
yet end up knowing very little.
It is the same with the heart,
which I have chased and condemned my house for.
Playing it safe,
I unpack my suitcases
and set boundaries like a persnickety cat,
never again leaving the house.
But is a warm bed better than a warm hand?
I often doubt myself in my own comfort zone.
