Come on, Comfort. Show me what you've got.
a poem about what brings me comfort <3
It happens on the first page - "Look, I didn't want to be a half-blood.". Every single memory comes back like a flood, and I welcome it. Hello again, old friend.
Your birthday was the other day, it's kinda funny how you'll always be seventeen. I first read you in the days of homework, ice cream, and cut grass - now it's work clothes, ironing, and caffeine.
We grew up together, you and I. And the way I feel has stayed the same. I'll flick through the pages and suddenly it's a waiting game. How long before the comfort kicks in?
It happens within the first ten minutes - "No, Scoob, friend's don't quit.". I'll be honest I've seen that movie more times than I'd like to admit.
It's just nostalgia wraps me in a blanket and offers me a safety the world never could. And it's true, comfort allows me to act like a child during the hardships of adulthood.
There's no place I'd rather be than tucked up in bed, re-watching Scooby on TV. But honestly, there's nothing that can beat a good cup of tea - unless, I guess, I won the lottery.
And, it happens when I see their face - "Oh my god, how has it been four years?". The sound of their laughter is music to my ears - hello again, old friend. (Although this time, this one's real)
I remember your smile as if no time has passed. It's funny really, how the comfort your friendship brings has been steadfast.
So whether it's books or movies, or food, or friends, comfort knows no home apart from the space in my heart. It sits there, taking up room, filling my life and - without it? I would simply fall apart.
How CUTE does that doggo look btw? I want to be that comfy all the time!
