I want to find my home

My whole life I have suffered

When will it end

I am so tired

Of pretending I am ok

I sit here and cry

As another walks away

They come and they go

I throw them out of my life

It is never enough

I need more than they can give

I cannot breathe

As the pain grips my chest

The loneliness a reminder

Of a life lived alone

I just want to find some peace

I want to find my home

  1. for too many years
    I used poetry to dump pain
    signed with angry stamps
    thank God I had an outlet
    never found that silver bullet

    alone not lonely
    grateful for the separations
    I did not choose well
    again and again the same
    my addiction to pain prevailed

    I do not bleed now
    I wasn’t looking when she came
    I can’t believe it
    the world is not void of love
    hearts of stone can come alive


  2. Where is home. I just wonder. Is home where you sleep. Where you feel safe. I often want to run away but I from what. I am home. Where do I want to run to. I just don’t know. But I still feel I have not found home. Your poem was very thought provoking
