I'm back.

Being back in New York City is like breathing into your lover’s sweater when his arms are tightly wound around you. It’s dark purple butterflies fluttering around your internal illuminance. It’s cold pizza with even colder french fries at 4am after too many IPAs. It’s where I lay my heavy head weighted in 80 pounds worth of dreams increasing exponentially at every given second. It’s where my cacti name Carlos and my banana tree name Zahir lives, my poor babies. I know they miss mommy. It’s where I’ve began a hundred books and never reached the back cover.

And while I way away, home had no problems reminding me how beautiful he is. He whispers in my ear thousands and thousands of miles away to tell me how the buildings sparkled extra hard in the skyline last night. And tonight, I get to see it. In person.

I’m back.
