Spring Break

Hardly able to move

I lay on my bed

Not filled with regret

Yet tired as heck

Soft pillow under my head

And warm blanket under my hands

I finally think to myself

“I came back home”

Just returned from Australia

It was not a total failure

I enjoyed the break a lot

Though it was way too hot.

Yet my skin does not sting,

No sunburn in sight.

Sunscreen bottle in trash, empty.

Finally won’t be way too sweaty.

My bag is unpacked

And I still smell with delight

Salt water and sweat,

Everything’s covered in red.

Sand is still spilling out

Creating a beach on the ground

I went to check in my wallet,

But there’s not a cent in a pocket.

Got to shower at last

Without crawlies for company

Those adventures are now in the past

School is tomorrow luckily.

Though Australia was great

The familiar home is the best.

My eyes are starting to feel heavy, mate.

Gonna sleep and dream of the West.
