Ode To Comfort

Jillian McGuire

ode to sweatpants full of comfort when everything feels off
happiness feels like it’s drifted away
ode to my favorite place home
to my bedroom where i escape
ode to chocolate milkshakes after a bad day
my mouth savors the taste of what i love
ode to laughter on a picnic with my favorite people
so sweet and oh my so alive
the redness of the strawberries
the sweetness
ode to my notebook full of thoughts i have trouble saying
ode to chaos for it allows the calm
ode to recovery for it leads to the comfort of growth
