A Nowhere Place

Too far did I roam

By Teralyn PilgrimPublished 3 years ago Updated 3 years ago 1 min read
This is a mistake, a blight. I just want to go home.

Too far did I roam

This life was a mistake, a blight

I just want to go home


The nasty heat shimmers like chrome

The air here never smelled right

Too far did I roam


I would have left had I known

The snickers of others, the words that bite

I just want to go home


I once lived in forests and fertile loam

Blinking stars that sing at night

Too far did I roam


A ticket bought, savings blown

I pack my suitcase tight

I can finally go home


Mind of rage and mouth of foam

It escalated again, our fight

Once again, I long to roam

I just want to go home
