You once told me that Star Wars felt like home
            And I laughed because
  It sounded like such a strange declaration
       And seemed so out of the blue
        But then I started thinking

What could possibly remind the homeless of home?
             note the difference between house and home

And I thought to myself that night
             Long and hard
    As I held you in my arms

                            In all my thinking I found that each place had a memory
                But I could not bring myself to call any of those places
                                HOME
Because I am among the homeless
    As I always have been

So I thought to myself some more
And after quite some time spent dreaming of long empty houses
I realized something

         You remind me of home
Of warm nights spent with the one you love
   Of laughing uncontrolably for ages
   Of kisses stolen long past midnight
Of hopes and dreams and happy memories

                                                      So I told you
                                           and i cried
                                    Because it was the first time
                           That anything had ever felt like home
Gotta love those based-on-a-true-story, quarter-til-two poems

EDIT: Holy crap, a DD. Thank you all for the comments and favorites and everything else! I never thought this would get such a reaction

A response because you need to know. After all this time, and I can only just now say something. After all this time, maybe you can forgive me.

I always felt my home was Laketown, until I got there. All I felt was stupid.

I love this because I've never felt like I truly had a home. But I'm starting to find one, and it's exciting. It's beautiful, and I can't wait to "move in".

"Moving in" is an amazing. Of course, I didn't realize that was the feeling until I really thought about it.

Oh my goodness....I think I started tearing up a little on the second read through.
I've always considered myself a bit of a, well, wanderer, and this poem reminded me of that. Long have I decided I am content in my restlessness, but everything once in a while, I seem to long for a set place, usually within a person. This poem reminds me of that. :) Wonderful work. It seems sincere, heartfelt, and very true-to-life.

I thought I was content too, until I had the conversation(s) this is about and I realized I needed that comfort. I hope you find that home you long for
