A Place Like Home

Rank 5 Out of 10
Wondering in the lonely streets

Speaking in the strange crowd

Roaming in the empty spaces

Watching and hearing the world

As it moves-on in the rush

Remembering the times when

One rested in the warmth

Of the peaceful surroundings

And living together under

One roof and behind four walls.

But outside of those four walls

It feels like being crushed

Between the walls of loneliness

And being soaked in the rain

Outside that one roof.

Searching for a place to lie down

With a heavy heart that

No longer feels anything

And looking hard into other’s eyes

To recognize if they are our own.

But whatever we do

Or wherever we go

Whatever we say

Or whatever we ask

A place like home

We will never find.
